Frieze Sculpture Park Announced For 2014 London Fair
The Frieze Sculpture Park which was announced on 17 September will again 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.’
For the second year the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art, will develop a dedicated app for the Sculpture Park with detailed information on each of the sculptures and an audio guide by curator Clare Lilley. The Frieze Sculpture Guide app by The Art Fund will be available to download for free from the App store and Google Play from 14 October.
The Sculpture Park is located in the English Gardens of The Regent’s Park, a short walk to the east of the entrance of Frieze London. Entrance to the Sculpture Park is free to the public. Frieze London and Frieze Masters take place from the 15–19 October 2014. This year marks the eleventh consecutive year of sponsorship by Deutsche Bank.
