Talkie-Walkie Walkie-Talkie (2019)

Residency at Fructôse, Dunkirk

As the United Kingdom leaves the European Union, the Walkie-Talkie Walkie-Talkie project stimulates Franco-British artistic exchanges by proposing a new cross-border cooperation framework in the field of contemporary creation.

Nine French artists from the Côté d'Opale and eight English artists from the English South Coast were invited to collaborate in the Fructôse workshops from July 4th to 7th.

Grouped into four creative teams, these artists with different nationalities and artistic practices will build collective creations around the concept of trans-frontier. Utopian, caustic, pragmatic, committed, delirious, pointy or far-fetched, these projects, carried out in the feverish atmosphere of a 48-hour artistic marathon, will seek to create a link where the break threatens.

With the artists Alfonse, Paul and the others, Ruchi Anadkat, Jacob Bray, Martin Deknudt, David Droubaix, Aurélien Maillard, Fabien Marques, Elodie Merland, Claire Orme, Tomas Poblete, Melissa Ryke, Edward Sanders, Dan Scott, Nina Shen-Poblete , Holly Silngsby, Sara Trillo and Anais Vranesic.
