Among the Trees: Eva Jospin

For Eva Jospin, cardboard is a precious material. In this short video, find out how the artist works with this normally overlooked, everyday material to construct her dense, fairytale-like installation Forêt Palatine (2019-2020), which features in the Hayward Gallery exhibition Among the Trees

Among the Trees: Eva Jospin | Hayward Gallery


The forest … is a very powerful subject when you start working on it, because it’s something that talks to everybody. You have so many myths about journeys, or finding the truth … it’s an image of the mind, an image of being lost, or finding your way.
Eva Jospin, artist

As a charity, we rely on ticket sales for a huge chunk of our income. But now they’ve stopped. And it's a huge worry to us, and the people we work with. We all need the escape of art and culture; it can inspire and unite us. So please – if you can afford to – consider a donation to the Southbank Centre today, to help us be there for you in the future.
