Biography of the artist



Born in 1975, Eva Jospin graduated from the École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Paris in 2002. She currently works and lives in Paris.
The space between the real and the fictional, the familiar and the unusual is where Eva Jospin’s work thrives. For the past fifteen years, she has been composing meticulous forests and architectural landscapes, which she develops in various media, being cardboard, bronze, embroidery or drawing.

Winner of the Prix de l’Académie des Beaux-Arts in 2015 and resident at the Villa Medici in Rome in 2017, she has had numerous exhibitions of international importance, notably at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris (Inside, 2014) and at the Palazzo dei Diamanti in Ferrara in 2018, at the Museum Pfalzgalerie in Kaiserslautern in 2019, at the Hayward Gallery in 2020 in London, at the Het Noordbrabants Museum in Den Bosch (Paper Tales, 2021) and more recently at the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature in Paris (Galleria, 2021). The artist also unveiled several monumental and immersive installations as part of specific commissions, for example in the centre of the Cour Carrée du Louvre (Panorama, 2016), or at the Abbey of Montmajour (Cénotaphe, 2020); signed the creation of an incredible set of embroidered panels for the Dior Haute Couture fashion show 2021–2022 (Chambre de Soie, 2021) and realized the monumental décor of the Dior spring-summer 2023 fashion show (Nymphées, 2022).

Eva Jospin also created permanent works such as the installation Folie, at the Domaine de Chaumont-sur-Loire, inaugurated in 2015, La Traversée at Beaupassage in 2018 in Paris, and Le Passage in Nantes in 2019. In 2022, Eva Jospin inaugurated Microclima, a new permanent installation conceived as a winter garden in the Max Mara Piazza del Liberty shop in Milan. Throughout 2023, more than twenty of Eva Jospin’s works were presented at contemporary art fairs around the world as part of the carte blanche given to her by the Maison Ruinart. These works were connected with her solo exhibitions at the Fondation Thalie in Brussels (Panorama) and at the Palais des Papes in Avignon (Palace). In 2024, Eva Jospin’s work is presented at the Museo Fortuny (Selva) in Venice, and at the Château de Versailles (Eva Jospin – Versailles).
