The Sculptor Speaks

The Sculptor Speaks by Olivia Louvel.

A resounding of a 1961 tape by British sculptor Barbara Hepworth. Having unearthed the tape at the British Library, Louvel has designed for it a complete new sound environment, applying principles of sculpture to her voice to manipulate its texture, as direct carving. By repurposing this archival material, Louvel broadens the understanding of Barbara Hepworth’s legacy through an aural investigation of the voice.
