On the 18th of October 2022, after a selection process consisting of more than 1000 applications and the auditions of 12 nominees, the jury selected Dora Jeridi as the winner of the 9th Emerige Revelations Grant. The artist will benefit from the support of the partner, Galerie mor charpentier, as well as the provision of a workshop for one year and a grant of €15,000 for a solo exhibition at the gallery in 2023.

In addition, Valentin Ranger received the Special Jury Prize, which will also provide him with a personal exhibition at the galerie mor charpentier.

A militant patron of culture, for over 30 years Emerige has guided multiple programs throughout Paris.  As the leading developer within Paris itself and fifth in the Greater Paris area, creating a better life in the city, is Emerige’s ambition.  Since 2016, the organization has been committed to a voluntary and unique CSR approach placing art at the heart of its commitments by promoting access to culture for all. Through the dissemination of art in the city as well as cultural programs and sponsorship policies Emerige is dedicated to young people. Each year, 15,000 children benefit from a multitude of initiatives including « Une journée de vacances. Versailles » (A Day Off in Versailles), the Fondation du Collége de France, the Paris Autumn Festival and Gérard Garouste’s La Source. 

As the first signatory of the “1 Immeuble, 1 oeuvre” (1 building, 1 artwork) charte Emerige also contributes to the development of art in the city by the systematic installation of artworks in each building they design. Today, there are over 100 works for over 100,000 users and inhabitants in these buildings. 

In June 2022, Emerige inaugurated L’Atlas, galerie des mondes, an exhibition space in the heart of La F.licit. designed to invite foreign galleries to present artists that they promote.

Emerige Revelations Grant Awardee: Dora Jeridi

Dora Jeridi was born in 1998 in Paris, where she still lives and works. After completing her Master’s Degree in Contemporary History (Paris, 2012),  this year’s prize winner went on to train at the Beaux-Arts de Paris. Most recent exhibitions include; Experience (2021) Art au Centre (2021) and CRUSH (2020). 

The creatives practice is intense, energetic, and expressive. Showing a strong desire for the material and an avid, sometimes voracious, relationship to painting. By representing situations where enigmatic narrativity often appears, for the artist, it is a matter of showing a state of crisis that cannot be spoken, a world that is silent, although eager for expression. At times dreamlike, occasionally nightmarish, and sometimes violent, Jeridi’s work bears witness to an irreducible tension between chaotic outbursts and the quest for grace.


The Special Jury Prize awardee: Valentin Ranger

Born in 1992 in Paris Valentine Valentin Ranger lives and works between Paris and London. A graduate of the Beaux-Arts de Paris (2023) and participant of Exchange with the RCA (London, 2023), Rangers most recent achievements  include a collaboration with the Opéra comique (Paris, 2022), ‘Des corps libres — Une jeune scène française’ exhibit (Paris, 2022) and the Laureate of the agnès b. Prize (2021). Without distinction of the medium, Ranger’s work consists of the creation of a personal digital 3D world that is built like an ecosystem in perpetual metamorphosis and overflow. Closely linked to drawing, the immersive worlds imagined by the artist invoke free spaces where fantasy is linked to memories and dreams. A Méta Organisme in perpetual infection reproduces and develops. 

Passionate about the body, sexuality, and scientific research, the artist draws his motivation from questions of identity and society and deploys an aesthetic with spectacular ambition. His baroque and mutant microcosms weave a network of new narratives, new identities, and new forms to be explored in a opera world constructed and organized in the image of an author and his characters, here, hybrid and mutant creatures.


The 2022 awarding jury was comprised of: 

Laurent Dumas (Chairman of the Emerige Group) 

Alex Mor & Philippe Charpentier (Cofounders of the mor charpentier gallery, Paris & Bogota) 

Éric de Chassey (Managing director of the National Institute for Art History, INHA), 

Mouna Mekouar (Exhibition curator and art critic)

Françoise Pétrovitch (Artist)
