Frieze Sculpture Park
15 / 19 October 2014
Frieze is pleased to announce that for the second year the Frieze Sculpture Park will include works from both Frieze London and Frieze Masters. Selected for the third year running by Clare Lilley, Director of Programme at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, UK, this year the Sculpture Park will provide a showcase for significant modern works alongside some of the newest sculptural practice. With free public access, Frieze Sculpture Park gives visitors to The Regent’s Park a rare opportunity to see an important selection of public art in the open air.
The Sculpture Park includes work from artists: Caroline Achaintre, Reza Aramesh, George Condo, Michael Craig-Martin, Martin Creed, Gabriele De Santis, Matt Johnson, KAWS, Yayoi Kusama, Seung-taek Lee, Roelof Louw, Marie Lund, Fausto Melotti, Richard Nonas, Not Vital, Kristin Oppenheim, Jaume Plensa, Ursula von Rydingsvard, Thomas Schütte and Franz West.
Combining modern and contemporary sculpture, Lilley’s selection explores issues of size and scale with a number of monumental works alongside site-specific and video works. Located in the English Gardens of The Regent’s Park, the Sculpture Park benefits from an exceptional setting in which to experience and appreciate outdoor works, furthering the understanding of sculpture today.
Clare Lilley said, ‘Unique in the world’s art fairs, this year’s Frieze Sculpture Park is an intriguing and delightful breath of fresh air featuring artists from across three generations. We see explorations of the natural world that include a remaking of a 1967 action by Roelof Louw and fencing by Caroline Achaintre, alongside analyses of the human form and its condition in works by Thomas Schütte and Reza Aramesh. Carefully sited across the English Gardens, the sculptures made from a range of materials including bronze, concrete and helium balloons, are a striking pageant of contemporary practice.’
