Frieze Art Fair

And now it's closed! Having missed the last couple of years, this year I managed to get to Frieze twice, once for the private view and once more on Saturday. All I can say as it is incredibly overwhelming, inspiring and rather hectic, all in all, the standard experience of an Art Fair.

I was very pleased to see such a wonderful spread of Photography, so many great galleries exhibiting it in all its forms. From Gursky's to Demand's, Tillmans' to Pascual's every corner you turn another photographic form. It is hard to recall all the great works that I saw and the galleires that exhibited them, but a must mention is Matthew Marks, Maureen Paley, Taka Ishii Gallery and Casey Kaplan.

There was some truly brilliant drawings by Francis Alys at David Zwirner, some stunning Peter Fischli & David Weiss black and white sculptural photographs at Matthew Marks and at Zero, a collection of red moleskin diaries opened and framed, simple yet effective. Above and below are a few snaps I took of the works.

All rights of work are reserved to the artists mentioned above, Francis Alys, Fischli Weiss, Marlo Pascual and Zero Gallery
