Andrea Nacciarriti, Grain Circus, 2009

Frieze Sculpture Park in London is located in the beautiful surroundings of Regent's Park, a three-minute walk from Frieze London, and shows every year new works by established and emerging artists represented by worldwide galleries guests of the fair. Every October Frieze Sculpture Park offers the visitors the the opportunity to experience the park in a different way. Evocative works help to change the use of the Park. In 2009, edition curated by David Thorp, the opera "Grain Circus" by Andrea Nacciarriti, an emerging artist placed among the prominent names of  Art World such as Paul McCarthy and Louise Bourgeois, has transformed the English garden into a classic Italian-style corn field, through the irony of sculpture "Pumpkin" by Erwin Wurm . Year after year, new works and new curators. In 2012 Clare Lilley, Director of Programme of Yorkshire Sculpture Park, has selected for the Frieze Sculpture Park works with significant differences in conceptual terms, as the curator herself states, ranging from classical works like those of Hans Josephsohn, William Turnbull, and David Nash,to works using different media such as Yayoi Kusama, Jean-Luc Moulène, and Peter Liversidge, up to the ephemeral work by Maria Zahle, and subversive sculptures by Michael Landy, Simon Periton, and Alan Kane. In addition to these the formal geometries of the works by Thomas Scheibitz and Sam Falls, which contrast with the garden, and a bronze delightfully irreverent work by Sean Landers. Last May 24 Frieze announced the details of the eleventh edition to be held on 17-20 October 2013 which will introduce a new design and feature, with public areas of considerable size and a new layout of galleries, such as Blum & Poe (Los Angeles ), Galerie Max Hetzler (Berlin), Goodman Gallery (Johannesburg), Maccarone (New York); Overduin and Kite (Los Angeles), and Rodeo (Istanbul).
