Overview

The French artist Eva Jospin cuts and layers corrugated cardboard to create sculptures and reliefs. Handcraft and precision are essential aspects of her work. The artist retains the original color of the cardboard, since, for her, the material itself already contains sufficient color variations and nuances. The recurring motif is the forest—consisting of numerous trunks, branches, and twigs in extreme density and interspersed with black shadows that suggest depth and stimulate the viewer's imagination. Eva Jospin does not reproduce nature one to one, but conveys the feelings of fear, anarchy, or freedom that it triggers. The forest is a universal place of longing. Associated with childhood memories, fairy tales, and dreams, you can lose yourself in it—or find yourself there.
