Frieze Sculpture 2017
Frieze Sculpture takes park in Regents Park and brings together contemporary artists across the world to this little spot in London. There are around 25 sculptures in a variety of materials depicting a collection of things, feelings, life.
It's quite wonderful to see people interacting with these sculptures, and whats even lovelier is seeing people sitting having picnics by the feet of giant mouse-like creatures. This is what art is about, this is what it should be about. Enriching our public and private spaces.
This year the sculptures have been picked by Clare Lilley, Director of Programmes at Yorkshire Sculpture Park. There is a wonderful mix that includes political pieces and more whimsical ones.
The works are located in the English Gardens of Regents Park and are on display until the 8th of October. I would recommend getting the Tube to Regents Park and then walking the short distance to the English Gardens.
