Art Fairs

Chilean sculptor Fernando Casasempere will create a new site-specific installation for Frieze Sculpture Park comprising over 1,500 hand-sculpted porcelain elements. The carpet of porcelain will form a 'second skin' hovering over the ground of Regent's Park, mirroring its contours but also allowing the grass below to grow through the work, creating a direct relationship between sculpture and ground. The overall form will be reminiscent of natural rock formations such as the limestone pavements of the Yorkshire Dales and the West of Ireland.

 

Frieze Sculpture Park is curated by Clare Lilley, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, and this year includes works by 19 major artists. Entrance to the sculpture park is free to all.
