Regent’s Park has had an art attack for Frieze Sculpture 2018.
As parks go, Regent’s Park is pretty well stocked, already boasting a zoo, boating lake, open air theatre, and somewhat bafflingly, a university. This month, they’ve added an armada of art to that list, as Frieze Sculpture takes up residence for summer 2018.
Supremely cultured, and happily free to attend, Frieze Sculpture 2018 brings together the work of 25 enviously talented artists, representing countries all over the world. UK favourites like Tracey Emin, Larry Achiampong, and Richard Woods have all chipped in a piece, and the sculptures range from giant penguins to holiday homes. Frieze Sculpture runs until October 7th – here are our highlights:
Rana Begum, ‘No. 814′
Expect to see a fair few ‘grams of this colourful, crowd-pleasing sculpture from Bangladeshi artist Rana Begum.
Elmgreen & Dragset, ‘Si par une nuit d’hiver un voyageur’
Culture vultures will love the offering from this Danish-Norwegian duo.
Conrad Shawcross, ‘Optic Labyrinth’
Try not to get lost in this installation from UK artist Conrad Shawcross.
Bharti Kher, ‘The Intermediary Family’
The oddest family portrait we’ve seen in a while, but it certainly makes for a striking sight.
Richard Woods, ‘Holiday Home’
Central London location, cuteness factor is off the charts… if only this place had interiors, we’d definitely stay here.
Kimsooja, ‘A Needle Woman: Galaxy is a Memory, Earth is a Souvenir’
Bonus points for being trippy AF from the inside.
Tim Etchells, ‘Everything is Lost’
Mood-darkening or oddly inspiring? It all depends on your outlook.
John Baldessari, ‘Penguin’
Props to US artist John Baldessari for his lack of obfuscation: ‘Penguin’ is a 6-feet 7-inch tall penguin.
