Verified profile


Eva Jospin's (Paris, 1975) research has always drawn inspiration from nature in all its semantic and visual articulations. Through the use of materials such as cardboard, plant elements and fibres, metal parts, fabric, the artist creates plastic compositions of large volumes and with a strong scenographic impact. Works with a fairytale tone, at times mysterious, almost magical, which evoke or recreate a world that is at the center of one's interests: landscapes, trees, plants, branches, leaves, geological formations, pieces of vegetation, architectural structures that lead one to reflect on various themes such as creativity, the operational and intellectual processes through which it is expressed, today as in the past.

The project at the Fortuny Museum in Venice represents this once again: the works, imagined for the occasion, dialogue not only with the historical and environmental context that hosts them, Palazzo Pesaro degli Orfei, but above all with the identity of the collections that preserves, or the artistic production of Mariano Fortuny.


A dialogue that allows unexpected aesthetic and operational affinities to emerge between the poetics of the two interpreters: a continuous comparison and reference between Jospin and Fortuny on nature, on creative and experimental processes, which find their maximum expression both in the design and research on the fabric, as well as in the study of artifice and scenic fiction, always inherent to the theatrical universe, constantly reflecting on the themes of perspective, proportions and the visual and emotional relationship between artistic creation and spectator.

The large installation in the portico of Museo Fortuny is an artificial "forest" which, once crossed, gives the sensation of losing all sense of time and space, of finding oneself in an indefinite and disorienting "elsewhere".
