e1Born in Paris in 1975, Eva Jospin has created a unique way of bringing the life cycle of cardboard around full circle by turning back into the forest from whence it came – or at least, a representation of it. Reinventing the very nature of what makes a forest, she deconstructs the man-made and re-assembles it back into its original form.

Ripping and cutting through piles and piles of cardboard, layering it expertly in arrangements to create bas relief and even 3-dimensional shapes, her pieces grow a renewed life of their own and become a metaphor for exploration of self and expression of the internal journey of human existence. The juxtaposition of working with sturdy raw materials against the fragility and impermanence of nature itself is what lends a profound meaning to her work. We are so connected to nature as humans living on this earth, and yet there is a major disparity and disconnect that we are constantly trying to overcome.

I’d love to see a giant installation of Jospin’s forest and get lost in it, wouldn’t you?
