Journey to the Center of the Earth from 9 to 25 March 2018
Emerige and the Fonds de Dotation Emerige (Emerige endowment fund) present the exhibition Journey to the Center of the Earth from March 9 to 25, 2018: a journey through universes created by eight artists (Romain Bernini, Jennyfer Grassi, Joana Hadjithomas & Khalil Joreige, Bruno Perramant, Lucie Picandet, and Pierre Seinturier) within the vacated warehouses hidden behind the gate to 7, rue de Tolbiac. For the past year, these spaces have become the home of a diverse and experimental artistic activity, presented in-situ during this exhibition: a poetic and esthetic non-linear journey, a testament to the artists’ creativity.
Committed patron of young French artists for the past several years, Emerige is keenly aware of the problematic lack of studio space available to artists living in Paris. To remedy the situation, Emerige decided to grant eight artists, whose work is representative of the dynamism and vitality of the emerging French scene, access to vacant spaces located near the Bibliothèque François Mitterand, to use as their collective studio. Through this move, Emerige is providing them key support.
