Immagine CONFERENCE: Eva JOSPIN, “Making Your Follies: From the Forest to the Cave”

Eva Jospin, a distinguished guest closing this 101st season of conferences in Monaco. The Prince Pierre Foundation invites the public to discover the universe of the internationally known and recognized visual artist on Monday, April 15th at 6:30 pm, at the Théâtre des Variétés. Distinguished for her unique approach to sculpture, the refined and complex landscapes she creates from cardboard explore the relationship between nature and culture while questioning our perceptions of materiality.

What kind of journey does Eva Jospin invite us on? “My forest is entirely mental. It’s not figurative. It reflects human concerns: the idea of getting lost or finding oneself, our relationship to childhood and fairy tales, like Bambi or Hansel and Gretel, to archaic fears… My forests are conducive to mental escape.”


A graduate of the École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, laureate of the Prix de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts de Paris, and resident of the Villa Medici, Eva Jospin regularly exhibits forest and architectural landscapes developed in various mediums in France and worldwide. Her artistic work engages in dialogue with the exhibition venues, offering an experience between memory, material, and imagination through materials sometimes precious, sometimes devalued. The artist also unveils several monumental and immersive installations: the Cour Carrée of the Louvre (Panorama, 2016) and the Abbey of Montmajour (Cenotaph, 2020). She designed a series of embroidered panels for the haute couture fashion show of Maison Dior in 2021 (Chambre de Soie), as well as the monumental decor for the ready-to-wear spring-summer 2023 show (Nymphs, 2022). Eva Jospin also creates permanent works such as the installation Folie at the Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire in 2015, La Traversée at Beaupassage in Paris in 2018, and Le Passage in Nantes in 2019. In 2022, she inaugurates Microclima, a new permanent installation conceived as a winter garden within the Max Mara store on Piazza del Liberty in Milan. Following a triumph at the Palais des Papes in Avignon, Eva Jospin’s works will be exhibited at the Museo Fortuny in Venice from April 10th to November 24th, 2024. Next “off-site” conference: Philippe Descola, anthropologist, winner of the 2022 Principality Prize. Thursday, May 16th, 7pm, at the Maison de la Poésie, organized in partnership with the Philosophical Encounters of Monaco.
