Eva Jospin x Dior at Musée Rodin in Paris
“An invitation to contemplation and imaginary journeys; a moment suspended in time where illusion enhances reality…. I joined Eva Jospin at the Musee Rodin, to discover her installation ‘Silk Room’, specially created for the Dior autumn-winter 2021-2022 haute couture show.
The forty-meter-long immersive gallery is covered entirely with this exceptional embroidered work created by the French artist. Her work pays tribute both to the Embroidery Room at the Colonna Palace in Rome and to Virginia Woolf’s feminist manifesto A Room of One’s Own. Known for her creations in cut-out cardboard, Eva Jospin uses silk thread – as well as hemp, linen and cotton – to create an enchanting landscape. For this production – representing 350 square meters of embroidery – the artisans of the Chanakya ateliers and the Chanakya School of Craft in Mumbai have created, via a constant dialogue with the artist, a virtuoso composition featuring 400 different shades.”
