Alan Kane and Simon Periton – ‘eight fculptures’ at Frieze 2012 Sculpture Park

The Sculpture Park at Frieze London 2012 has been selected by Clare Lilley, Director of Programme at Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Measure  produced the installation of Alan and Simon’s work ‘eight fculptures’ for the sculpture park.  It was originally commissioned by the National Trust for the project the Garden of Reason at Ham House & Garden, Richmond.

Dazed’s visual arts editor, Francesca Gavin wrote: ‘…this installation of sculpture on playful pastel plinths was sheer genius. Alan Kane is better known for collaborating with Jeremy Deller on the Folk Archive show, but had been working with Simon Periton for Frieze. From punk cut outs to a fibreglass mannequin to Greco-Roman copies – this was like a potted history of sculpture throughout the ages. And bloody fun.’

In 2012 the following artists’ work were exhibited in the Sculpture Park:
Hemali Bhuta / Adip Dutta / Sam Falls / Hans Josephsohn / Alan Kane and Simon Periton / Yayoi Kusama / Sean Landers / Michael Landy / Peter Liversidge / Andreas Lolis / Jean-Luc Moulène / David Nash / Damián Ortega / Anri Sala / Thomas Scheibitz / William Turnbull / Maria Zahle
