Press Release

Eva Jospin (Paris, 1975), having completed her academic studies in Paris in 2002, was a pensionnaire at the Acadéie de France at Villa Medici in Rome in 2016-2017. Her research has always drawn inspiration from nature in all its semantic and visual articulations, that is, captured both in its original state and in the multiple iconographic and iconological interpretations that have been offered over time.

Museo Fortuny, Venice (Italy)

Through the use of poor materials - cardboard, plant elements and fibres, metal parts, fabric - the artist gives life to plastic compositions of large volumes and with a strong scenographic impact that evoke or recreate in their own way the world that is at the center of his interests: landscapes, trees, plants, branches, leaves, geological formations, pieces of vegetation, architectural structures. They have a fairy-tale tone, at times mysterious, almost magical and lead us to reflect on various themes: creativity and the operational and intellectual processes through which it expresses itself today as in the past, perception (Eva Jospin's works significantly modify that of place that hosts them, both on an intellectual and physical level), ecological and environmental issues. Her works on display in Venice bear witness to this. Imagined for the occasion, they dialogue not only with the historical and environmental context that welcomes them, Palazzo Pesaro degli Orfei, but also with the collections it houses, that is to say the rich and articulated artistic production of Mariano Fortuny, allowing unexpected emerge, sometimes surprising aesthetic and operational affinities with the poetics of their interpreter.
