Artist Statement

Italia is a cartographic work in the Baroque style, representing the territory of Italy. It is part of Olivia Babel's favorite theme, which is the representation of territories. The artist has produced other representations of territories such as France, Belgium, Senegal, the world... She also works on commission for personalized representations.

The textured and singular work is exceptionally rare. It is made with rare and unique weaving techniques (knot stitch, simple stitch, etc.) on a high-warp loom, in Olivia Babel's workshop in Lyon, France.

The hand-woven work is composed of golden fabrics, shiny threads and exceptional 100% natural wool.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Lyon

Based in: Lyon, France

After studying at the prestigious Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts of Lyon, France, Olivia Babel made a specialization in Fiber Art at the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-arts of Angers, France.

Specialized in fiber art, she is interested about concepts of territory and cartography.

Olivia Babel also represents territories in all them forms (fertile, arid, stripped by the time...) in order to question our relation to environment. She wants to highlight forgotten territories and to show cartography in an other way.

She is french and has differents origins around the world (France, Portugal, Brazil, Senegal, West Indies...). Because of that, she is open-minded. She shows her vision of the world fed by her origins, travels and cultures.

To create her artworks, she uses a traditional french savoir-faire and wants to highlight handmade work. All her pieces are handmade in her workshop in France.
