Sculpture In The Park

Inspired by Gregory Crewdson's photographs in my last post, I ventured out into central London's very own great outdoors - not sadly, into a Crewdson Cathedral of the Pines-style wilderness alasbut the man-made, verdant setting of Regent's Park. It was to see the outdoor temporary sculpture event taking place this summer - Frieze Sculpture park - a prelude, and taster to the over-the-top theatrics of the actual Frieze Art Fair itself, which arrives in October. There are some good sculptural works here, (and a few clunkers), but it is a great way for everybody to engage with contemporary art for free in a beautifully landscaped setting, which can only be a good thing.
