LA FORÊT


LA FORÊT

In the imagination, undergrowth is perceived as a hostile environment. Dark and dense, for some animals – such as boars and wolves – it constitutes the ideal habitat. For Eva Jospin (a graduate of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris) the depths of the forest are also indicative of childish fears. La Forêt, an installation from the eponymous series, is a plunge into the heart of the subconscious. Over 2.5m tall, the four wood and cardboard panels combine in order to create a fragile forest landscape. La Forêt is comparable to a work of « goldsmithery ». The trunks, branches and twigs are chiselled in a rough material, corrugated cardboard. This subject, a reminder of the topics of recycling and deforestation, inscribes the work of Eva Jospin in the ecological discourse. Despite its apparent simplicity, the installation is symbolic of human nature and its relationship with its environment.
