LONDON.- Frieze Art Fair announced today the works to be installed in its Sculpture Park, which will be presented in the wonderful setting of the English Gardens of Regent’s Park, located a short walk to the east of the entrance to the fair. Entry to the Sculpture Park is free.

This year’s Sculpture Park, again sponsored by Heath Lambert, presents work by a strong and broad spectrum of artists, including some of the most acclaimed international sculptors working today, and a number of unseen pieces. These include Louise Bourgeois, whose selected work, The Couple, 2003, is the largest in a series of hanging aluminium sculptures by the artist. Eva Rothschild, whose work has just been seen as the most recent Duveens’ commission at Tate Britain, will show a new work created specially for Frieze Art Fair, Someone and Someone, 2009. Artist Graham Hudson will make history at Frieze Art Fair this year. Edward VIII remains the only monarch since Elizabeth I not to have a statue or monument of commemoration in England; Hudson’s sculpture changes that.

Underlining the established relationship between Frieze Art Fair and the Royal Parks, one of the Sculpture Park works will retain a place in the English Gardens long after Frieze week is over. American artist Paul McCarthy’s work, Henry Moore Bound to Fail (Bronze), 2004 is an homage to the oeuvre of Henry Moore and will remain on display for six months.

Bursaries provided by Heath Lambert, incorporating Blackwall Green, have allowed innovative and diverse proposals by some participating galleries, enabling works that may not otherwise have been realised.

This year’s Sculpture Park demonstrates a distinctly international feel, with representation of works from both emerging and established artists from around the world. Artists also presenting work at the 2009 Sculpture Park include Neha Choski, from Project 88 gallery in Mumbai, Italian artist Andre Nacciarriti, whose sculpture Grain Circles, 2009, will use bales of hay in the space, and Mexican artist Teresa Margolles, who will show a new work called Bandera (Flag), 2009. Margolles’ recent work for the Mexican Pavilion at the Venice Biennale involved an emotive representation of the pervasive economy of death plaguing Mexico.

Other highlights this year include a work by Rémy Markowitsch, BONSAIPOTATO, 2001/2009, Zhan Wang’s Artificial Rock No. 16, 2007, Erwin Wurm’s Pumpkin, 2009, and Maria Roossen’s Breast Berries, 2009.

The Sculpture Park will also inform Frieze Education in 2009. Working with RCA alumni, young people will not only experience workshops and build works inside the fair, but also use the sculpture at Frieze Art Fair as inspiration.

David Thorp, selector of the Sculpture Park at Frieze Art Fair commented, “The Sculpture Park is a fantastic opportunity for the Frieze Art Fair audience and the wider public to see some of the world’s most interesting artists and the setting is perfect. This year sees a particularly diverse, international and exciting mélange of artists and works being presented on this inclusive and public stage at the UK’s biggest art event.”
