“Louvel grants Hepworth’s reflections and insights fresh embodiment. In the process her own assumptions and practices as a contemporary artist in other media come under self-reflexive scrutiny.”
‘Olivia Louvel, SculptOr [Hepworth Resounds], Raymond Cummings, The Wire, [print], March 2020, issue 433, p.63.
“There is something unequivocally human in Louvel’s work, centred around the voice and its manipulations” (...) “Armed with an algorithmic chisel and mallet, Louvel repurposes writings by the late English sculptor Barbara Hepworth”(...) “SculptOr is a highly conceptual and meta-referential piece, a sort of meditation on artistic practices”
