‘Tis the sad wind that sighs through the withering leaves
“Mi ritrovai per una selva oscura”

Eva Jospin develops her works with patience; and it is with patience that one must contemplate, and even experience them. The artist works with cardboard - in theory a raw, unappealing and simple material - to create volume and perspective. This certain vision of a so-called “poor” art, gives a particular attention to the material, to the physical involvement of the artist, and to the spatial context of its presentation. A dichotomy lies at the heart of this work, between the violence of the gesture (tearing apart and lacerating the cardboard) and the subtlety of the finished work, when it comes out finely crafted.
