The Greek artist will be creating The Temple of Play, described as a ‘free, creative playground’, that will provide activities for 3-12 year-olds. The children will be able to enjoy games, performances, creative workshops, screenings and other activities. Grown-ups are also welcome – and there will be adult supervision in the space.
In keeping with the child-friendly theme, for his Frieze Projects 2013 commission, Emdash Award-recipient Pilvi Takala has chosen to give the opportunity to devise and realise the commission to a committee of children, who through a series of workshops will determine the shape of the project.
This year, the other Frieze Projects commissions will be presented in a single dedicated space designed by Greek architect Andreas Angelidakis. These include projects by Gerry Bibby, Rivane Neuenschwander, Ken Okiishi, Lili Reynaud-Dewar and Josef Strau.
Austrian artist Strau will present a new series of his ‘Letter Tunnels’, which will be dotted around the project space. Visitors to the fair will be invited to sit on and crawl into the letter-shaped display. Inside each ‘letter’ there will be objects, texts and audio installations.
The artists commissioned to make film-based works for this year’s fair are Petra Cortright, Peter Gidal, Patricia Lennox-Boyd, Oraib Toukan and Erika Vogt
Frieze Projects, the fair’s film and music programme and the Emdash Award are curated by Nicola Lees of Frieze Foundation. Frieze London takes place from the 17–20 October 2013, Regent’s Park, London.
