Also featuring this year is Robert Indiana's ONE through ZERO, a series of giant metal numbers arranged in a circle, like a numerical stone henge. Indiana was part of the pop art movement and is perhaps best known for his sculpture of the word 'love' in which the individual letters are arranged in a square. New York based artist Tom Sachs appropriates elements of popular culture for his eclectic work and for Frieze Sculptures he is showing his painted bronze piece My Melody, which depicts a three metre high story book character with bunny ears.

Brazilian artist Vik Muniz's reproduction of a 1973 Jaguar E-Type Matchbox toy car will also be on display in the park's leafy surrounds, together with works by Lars Fisk, who transforms cars, trees, barns and roads into giant balls. Imagine a perfectly spherical VW Beetle, or a farm building that can roll away. For this iteration of of Frieze Sculpture he is exhibiting a new work, Tudor Ball, complete with floral window box.
There will be 23 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 3–6 October this year.
