As an art project, Paradise is the only place in Nantes dedicated to national and international artist residencies.
The structure of the location consists in two flats, a workshop, a gallery and a courtyard.
This singular and unique place is the result of a human adventure between the architects and sponsors Agnès Lambot and Philippe Barré, and two visual artists, Béatrice Dacher and Michel Gerson.
The residency at Paradise offers a research award, accomodation, a workshop and a gallery space (100m²).
It's a place for research, experimentation and exhibition. Paradise envisions a cycle of 5 to 6 artists residencies each year, aiming at the creation and exhibition of work, in a continual dynamic of exchange with the public.
For four years now, Paradise has invited more than 21 residency artists and more than 40 artists, in a spirit of mutual collaboration. More than 41 exhibitions and artistic events have taken place at Paradise over the last four years.
