Frieze Art Fair announced today the works to be installed in its Sculpture Park. The Sculpture Park offers a rare opportunity to see a significant group of international work that is addressed on a public scale. Presented in the wonderful setting of the English Gardens of Regent’s Park the Sculpture Park is located a short walk to the east of the entrance to the fair. Entry to the Sculpture Park is free to the public and is an opportunity for all to see work by some of the most interesting artists working today.
This year’s Sculpture Park presents work by a broad selection of artists, including some of the most acclaimed international sculptors working today. These include new works by Hans Peter Feldman and Ceal Floyer, as well as pieces by Marie Lund and Franz West.
Jeppe Hein, whose work Appearing Rooms on the Southbank of London was a hugely popular installation in 2008, will present 1-Dimensional Mirror Mobile (2009), a two-sided mirror that is inspired by Alexander Calder’s kinetic sculptures. Wolfgang Ganter and Kaj Aune*’s piece, Trash (2010), is a moving installation that emits sound and smoke. For his work, Les Bikes de Bois Rond (2010) *Gavin Turk has created 15 art bicycles that will be available for visitors to ride around the inner circle of Regent’s Park, on returning the bicycles, participants will receive a certificate signed by Turk declaring them an authentic work of art.
This year’s Sculpture Park demonstrates an international reach, with representation of works from emerging artists from around the world. Artists whose work will be presented in the 2010 sculpture park includes Sanchayan Ghosh, from Experimenter gallery in Kolkata, whose work DOOSRA – The Other Maze (2010) will consist of a bamboo maze and look to interrogate ideas surrounding nationalism and identity. Work will also be included by art collective Slavs and Tatars, from The Third Line gallery in Dubai, who will present the work A Monobrow Manifesto (from Friendship of Nations: Polish Shi’ite Showbiz) (2010).
Other highlights this year include a work by John Russell, Public Sculpture (2010), *Daniel Silver*’s The Smoking Silver Father Figures, (2010).
David Thorp, selector of the Sculpture Park at Frieze Art Fair commented, ‘As in previous years the Sculpture Park continues to provide the public with an overview of some of the most interesting developments in sculpture that has been made specifically for an outdoor setting and showcases the vitality and imagination of artists from around the world.’
