NEW YORK, NY.- Cristin Tierney Gallery presents Wormhole: Lina López and François Bucher. The exhibition features a collaborative installation by López and Bucher presented alongside Bucher’s video La nuit de l’homme.

Encompassing sculpture, video and photography, Wormhole explores the delicate distinction between reality and myth—a line that shifts according to our belief or doubt in the veracity of an idea. In their collaborations, the artists aim to deconstruct the hierarchy of knowledge set forth by contemporary scientific materialism, and to open a multidimensional understanding of man and nature within a millenary cycle.

At the center of the exhibition are the physical and conceptual connections between an ancient Egyptian tomb and a contemporary Norwegian seed bank. While separated by different time periods, locations and cultures, in Wormhole the tunnels coexist in a mythical place created by the artists. As López and Bucher write, ‘It is spaceless and timeless in that it reveals that our collective psychic dimension is always expressing eternal patterns: like the burial of the embalmed corpse, or the keeping of the seeds…in the expectation that they will bloom again some day.’

Born in 1972, François Bucher is an artist from Cali, Colombia. He graduated with a Masters in Film from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and was awarded a fellowship at the Whitney Independent Study Program, New York. Bucher's work has been exhibited many international institutions including Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Museo de Arte de Zapopan, Bienal de Cartagena, Bienal de Cuenca, Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo, Venice Biennale, Station Museum of Contemporary Art, Biennal de Lyon, Centre d’Art Contemporain Geneve, Berlin Documentary Film Forum, Jeu de Paume, Prague Biennial, Tate Britain, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. His writing has been published in the Journal of Visual Culture, Documenta Magazine and E-Flux Journal.

Lina López was born in 1977 in Colombia, and she lives and works between Berlin and Paris. She holds an Industrial Design degree from La Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, and, focusing on museology, was awarded an Art History degree and a Masters in Contemporary Art and Exhibition at La Sorbonne, Paris. Since 2001 she has worked as a scenographer in France on exhibitions including Modigliani, Botticelli, Gauguin, Véronèse and Tiziano. Working as a freelance curator and exhibition producer, she has contributed to exhibitions at the Palais de Tokyo, Galleria Continua, Galerie Vallois, National Museum of Colombia and Musee des Arts Asiatiques in France. Recently she directed the design and installation of the permanent collection of three regional museums and the National Museum in Georgia. Her collaborations with Bucher have appeared in the Bienal de Cartagena, Muséum national d’Histoire Naturelle in Paris, Cicus in Sevilla, FLORA in Colombia and the Bildmuseet in Sweden.

Wormhole inaugurates the gallery's new Black Box program, a paradigm that originated in museums to showcase experimental art forms. Highlighting moving images and new media, Black Box will become part of the gallery’s annual programming, and will feature a diverse array of international artists.
