The Art World descends on London, one at a time please!
Straight after London Fashion Week we have Frieze. No not a show of extreme ice sculptures but the London Art fair which sees all the major collectors of art congregate on the capital. Ever one for a quick peak we headed for Regent's Park to see what all the fuss was about. With our VIP tickets still in the Post we were unable to get past this point, can you believe it?
Gods and Monsters: Contemporary Art in Historical Museums (and vice versa)
We managed to miss Okwui Enwezor Director of Haus der Kunst, Munich. Hou Hanru currently the Artistic Director of MAXXI (National Museum for 21st Century Art and National Museum of Architecture), Rome, Italy. Sheena Wagstaff leads Modern and Contemporary Art at The Metropolitan Museum of Art. and Jennifer Higgie co-editor of frieze and Frieze Masters Magazine, very careless indeed.
So we headed over to the Frieze Sculpture Park or as we like to call it the People's park
Selected by Clare Lilley (Yorkshire Sculpture Park), the Frieze Sculpture Park featured 19 major artists including Conrad Shawcross, Claus Oldenburg, Nairy Baghramian, Ed Herring, Goshka Macuga and Lynn Chadwick. This cheeky Rabbit, Drummer by Barry Flanagan stood proud against the elements
Stub it out!
Claes Oldenburg produces the Fagend Study a great image of our time, the fag end of all fag ends, the butt of all jokes but the jokes on us I fear, will this soon be a long distant memory?
Bound, bonded and tussled
Mikayel Ohanjanyan has produced some fantastically delicate work of solid marble, iron and stainless steel on a bench for all to see. Brilliant, who isn't into a bit of bondage these days?
And onto Frieze Projects
Supported by the LUMA Foundation and curated by Raphael Gygax (Migros Museum, Zurich), the projects programme featured Sibylle Berg & Claus Richter; Martin Soto Climent; Coco Fusco and the winner of the 2016 Frieze Artist Award is Yuri Pattison
Dancers in Gossamer
Martin Soto Climent used tights to produce a spider web with performance dancers and acrobats , it was strange yet very graceful.
...and after all that Art it was time to find
