The Frieze Sculpture Park 2015 will comprise 16 new and historical works, many of which will remain on show to the public until 17 January 2016. Set in the English Gardens in the Regent’s Park, the Sculpture Park is selected for the fourth consecutive year by Clare Lilley, Director of Programme at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Set in the English Gardens between Frieze London and Frieze Masters, and with free public access, the Frieze Sculpture Park gives visitors to The Regent’s Park a rare opportunity to encounter exceptional sculpture, spanning hundreds of years of art history, in the open air.

Works for 2015 include: Lock (1976-7), a major work by Richard Serra, which Peter Freeman (New York) will show for the first time publicly since it was exhibited at the Whitney Museum in 1977; live performances by Anri Sala, originally commissioned for the 12th Havana Biennial (Galerie Chantal Crousel, Paris & Marian Goodman Gallery, London); Open Screen (2014) by Carol Bove (David Zwirner, London) and a monolith from the pre-Ekoi culture of Western Africa, estimated to be 800–1,000 years old (Didier Claes, Brussels).

Visitors to the English Gardens can also encounter an oversized snake ring in polished concrete by Kathleen Ryan (François Ghebaly, Los Angeles); a large marble form by Tony Cragg (Lisson Gallery, London); an anthropomorphic bronze by William Turnbull (Offer Waterman, London); a work from the “Signal” series by Takis (Axel Vervoordt, Antwerp); Dominique Stroobant‘s elegant geometric composition (Axel Vervoordt, Antwerp); a new solar-powered light and sound piece by Haroon Mirza (Lisson Gallery, London), developing from his intervention at the Museum Tinguely, Basel, earlier this year; a large painted and lacquered metal piece by Gary Webb (The Approach, London); an oversized beaten steel shoe by Aaron Angel (Rob Tufnell, London); a new ceramic “totem pole” by Jesse Wine (Limoncello, London); a tetrahedral tree-like form by Conrad Shawcross, part of his recent installation in the courtyard of London’s Royal Academy of Arts (Victoria Miro, London); a colony of rabbits made from plastic bags by Leo Fitzmaurice (The Sunday Painter, London); and Seung-taek Lee‘s monumental balloon model of the earth, which will gradually deflate across the course of the fair (Gallery Hyundai, Seoul).

For the third year the Art Fund, the national fundraising charity for art, develops a dedicated app for the Sculpture Park, with detailed information on each of the sculptures and an audio guide by Clare Lilley.

2015 Family Guide
Supported by Born to Be, Deutsche Bank’s global youth engagement programme, the 2015 Family Guide makes the Sculpture Park its focus, encouraging imaginative engagement with the sculptures and an insight into the wildlife which surrounds them.
