Magnetic is a joint Franco-British initiative launched in 2022 under the umbrella of Fluxus Art Projects, bringing together eight institutions in a programme of eight-week artist residencies. The laureates of the second edition of the Magnetic programme were announced on 13 November at the residence of the French Ambassador to the United Kingdom.

This year, each residency is based on a tandem partnership between one French region and a UK nation as part of Magnetic 2. Tandems associate CAPC in Bordeaux/Nouvelle-Aquitaine with Wysing Arts Centre in Cambridge/England, Frac Bretagne in Rennes/Brittany with Aberystwyth Arts Centre/Wales, Frac Grand Large in Dunkirk/Hauts-de-France with Flax Art Studios in Belfast/Northern Ireland, and Villa Arson in Nice/Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur with Cove Park/Scotland.

Magnetic has thoughtfully selected eight talented artists, ranging from early-career to mid-career, to engage with host institutions eight prominent arts venues across the UK and France.

The laureate artists are:

  • Chizu Anucha (Scotland) for Villa Arson (Nice)
  • Daria Blum (England) for CAPC (Bordeaux)
  • Tom Cardew (Wales) for Frac Bretagne (Rennes, Bretagne)
  • Charys Wilson (Northern Ireland) for Frac Grand Large (Dunkirk)
