Review of 'Frieze Sculpture 2018'

https://frieze.com/sculpture-2018

Held every summer in The English Gardens in Regents Park (on the east middle side of the park) this is a free display of some truly wild sculpture. The web site offers a free map to the sculptures as well as a (recommended) mobile phone app. The map is really required as it is easy to overlook some of the pieces such as one hanging from a tree…

Entering the sculpture area from the south the first piece that strikes you is the large cartoon house (“Holiday Home” by Richard Woods). A few highlights: “Optic Labyrinth” by Conrad Shawross - an amazing metal piece that begs you to walk in amongst it; “Threadpad B - Pair 1”/“Threadpad B - Pair 2” by James Capper, a massive colourful piece of industrial art alongside the path; the chilling “Stress” by Yoan Capote, a narrow plinth of concrete blocks with narrow layers of gold teeth (cast from real teeth) between them.

Well worth checking out. Take your time to enjoy and examine the pieces from all angles in the glorious Regents park…free of charge!
