Le Wonder Residency

Le Wonder is an artist-run-space, a place run by and for artists. Since 2013, the eponymous collective has occupied
large disused complexes in the Parisian suburbs and has shaped the places it occupies in its own image: col-lective and individual studios, a pool of shared machines and tools, a space for experimentation and emergence for artistic thought.
Le Wonder aims to be an independent production and distribution tool, available to the young French and inter-national artistic scene.

Plurality is at the heart of Le Wonder project.
Nowadays, it welcomes 70 permanent artists and offers 4 research and creation residencies for three artists and a French and international curator.
On site, practices and research intersect and are exchanged. Thanks to those meetings, porosity and creations
are influenced, evolve and are enriched. They sometimes give rise to unexpected collaborations. This collective and cooperative experience outlines new forms of co-crea- tion and sharing.

The research and creation residency offered by Le Wonder is not focused on the production of a specific project. Research and experimentation practices are encouraged, whether theoretical, material or formal.
The artist/the curator will be welcomed for a period of one month. It is possible and encouraged to share a time to present the work at the start of the residency period.

Each laureate can propose a restitution of their residency, whether in the form of an open studio, a conference, a workshop, a screening, a banquet.

The guest artist/curator receives a residency grant of 1.850 euros, distributed as follows:
• artist’s fees: 1.200 euros
• travel costs to get to/from Le Wonder in Bobigny: fixed price of 250 euros
• production costs if applicable: within the limit of 400 euros
Accommodation is provided free of charge by Wonder during the residency period.
