Eva Jospin

Brainchild of 19th century sculptor François-Frédéric Lemot, La Garenne Lemot is a 13-hectare (32-acre) estate overlooking the Sèvre River and the town of Clisson, nestled among the region’s vineyards. Here, ornamental garden follies create a landscape-wide composition that juxtaposes hints of Tuscany with traces of local history.

Eva Jospin is a sculptor. The beauty and resilience of nature, as well as the disquiet and fascination that emerge from myths or fairy tales, are sources of inspiration for this artist, whose work symbolically gives nature centre stage.

For several years now, Jospin has devoted herself to the theme of the forest, which she sculpts using cardboard to bring her motifs to life (trunks, roots, foliage, branches, etc.).

Once again, these motifs find a home in this project, where the sculpted cardboard was used as the basis for a mould in which a set of bronze sculptures were cast.

AFor her first monumental bronze sculptures, Jospin has created a work where five majestic trees surge out of the ground in a network of intertwined branches and leaves.
