Robert Indiana — you may remember his giant metal numbers ONE through ZERO sculptures displayed in Regents Park for Frieze in 2019 — will be coming back this year with text structures merging poetry with political messages.
The poetic-political will play out further in the work of Péju Alatise with a four-panel life-sized sculptural composition featuring the figure of a young girl. Finding inspiration in Yoruba mythology and folklore, Alatise highlights the plight of marginalised young girls and the issue of child labour.
Also this year, the works of Ron Adad and Marinella Senatore will be reflecting on the importance of coming together – as a community and as a social voice.
Works by Alicja Kwade, George Rickey, Emma Hart and NS Harsha will conjure the universal and spiritual, whilst folklore and mythology will b explored by Matthew Darbyshire and Jordy Kerwick.
There will be 19 works on display this year and to help you navigate all of them there is a free audio tour by curator Claire Lilley and a family trail, both available through a free app.
Frieze Sculpture provides the perfect chance to take in some culture in a relaxed environment with the pleasant sense of discovery that comes from finding giant artworks among the park's verdant trees. It also provides a nice warm-up to Frieze London, also in Regent's Park, running 12–16 October this year.
