Frieze Sculpture: Art in the Greenery of Regent’s Park

Frieze Sculpture: Art in the Greenery of Regent’s Park
#Art

More than 20 international artists and an unprecedented level of quality - that’s how the 2019 Edition of Frieze Sculpture is being billed, already cultural highpoint for years during the summer in London. Once again, the English Gardens of Regent’s Park, a few steps away from the pavilions that, every autumn, hosts the prestigious Frieze London and Frieze Masters, become a museum en plein air, accessible to all with free admission. “London’s greatest open-air art show,” as defined by artistic director Stella Sawicka, is ready to conquer visitors with works from around the world which truly represent the breadth of contemporary approaches to sculptural art. In the middle of the park’s greenery, we find the Pop Art of American Robert Indiana with a monumental installation dedicated to the power of numbers, the disturbing figure of When I Sleep by British artist Tracey Emin, the Jaguar by Brazilian Vik Muniz which, enlarging a child’s toy, plays with the values of the art scene, and a three-metre high bronze by Pakistan-American Huma Bhabha, a unique cross between sci-fi and ancient sculpture. And then there are giant grapes, hybrid beings that are a cross between a woman and a bunny rabbit, houses shaped like balls, colourful sculptures created by splicing together old cars, all ready to allure young and old alike in an itinerary perfectly suited for visits by families. To find out more about the works on display, all you have to do is download the audioguide for smartphones made available by the organisers and follow along with the voice of curator Clare Lilley.
