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

“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

Among the Trees is at Hayward Gallery until 31 October. 

The exhibition is open on Wednesday – Saturday, 11am – 7pm and Sunday, 10am – 6pm; and closed on Monday and Tuesday. You must book online before visiting.

Enjoy your visit safely

London has now been placed in Tier 2 of the government’s new lockdown restrictions. This means that when indoors you cannot mix with people who are from different households, or outside your support bubble.

You can still come to the Hayward Gallery; our environment is still safe and Covid-secure, and we’ve plenty of hand sanitiser available to keep your hands clean. However, you must only move through the gallery with people from your own household or support bubble. This is in addition to maintaining social distancing, and wearing a face covering at all times, when in the gallery. 

We look forward to seeing you.
