François Bucher is an artist trained in Film by The School Art Institute of Chicago and was awarded with a research grant by the Whitney Independent Study Program in New York. He is currently a visiting professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Umea, Sweden, where he is pursuing a doctorate in art practices within the same institution.
His work and research covers a wide range of interests and means, which initially focused on issues relating to ethical and aesthetic questions raised by the film and television, which have been central themes, both in his writings and in his artistic projects. Until 2008 his work could be described from conceptual and political positioning. Since then, Bucher´s ideas about the world have taken an abrupt turn and his new production is in relation with a position that can be described as interdimensional. Each one of the works are interrelated with the others, and each virtual splice is there to create multiple short circuits of unpublished meaning. The pieces make ellipsis, new dimensions of thought underlying the whole field.
François Bucher participated in 2013 at the 55th Venice Biennale in the Italian Latin American Institute Pavilion, curated by Silvia Irrazábal and Alfons Hug and 43 Salón Nacional de Artistas de Medellín curated by Mariángela Méndez. During 2014 he has been one of the selected artist to Cartagena Bienal, Colombia (curated by Berta Sichel) and Cuenca Bienal, Ecuador (curated by Japopo Crivelli). Recently, he participed is the FIAC (Paris) last edition -2014 with a specific project made for Museum of Natural Sciences
