Abstract: The kind of signs you see in a park, but not the signs you see in a park.  They don’t point you anywhere, tell you anything or ask anything of you.  They point at themselves, tell you things you already know and only ask you to have a little think.  The kind of think you’d have in a park.

Frieze Sculpture 2022 engages with a number of themes; works by Robert Indiana, John Giorno, John Wood and Paul Harrison, and Tim Etchells are structured as texts, conveying messages that merge poetry and political messages. The poetic-political plays out further in the work of Péju Alatise and Ro Robertson, whose gazes turn to female and non-binary healing in nature, and Shaikha al Mazrou, Beverly Pepper and Ida Ekblad create ambitious sculptures that are charged with the sensibility of women. The importance of coming together – as community and as a social voice – is conveyed in works by Marinella Senatore, Pablo Reinoso, and Ron Arad. Finally, as our world looks with uncertainty into the near future, works by Alicja Kwade, George Rickey, Emma Hart and NS Harsha conjure the universal and spiritual, whilst folklore and mythology are explored by Matthew Darbyshire and Jordy Kerwick.
