Frieze Art Fair 2013 may already be a couple of weeks behind us but that doesn’t mean I’m done with posting all the great photos I took of some really fun and inspiring art. Here are a few of my favorite realist (and surrealist) sculptures and installations from this year’s fair!
I didn’t catch the name of this artist (which is the case with most of my pics, due to moving fast and trying to get clean shot with no extra bodies in them) but this sculpture of a body in a bathtub covered by a black tarp is pretty creepy and looked surprisingly real.
I’m sure there is a deeper meaning here that I missed but I think this is just row of Snapple bottles filled with Red, Blue and Yellow Water. This probably costs thousands of dollars but you could totally make this at home. Andy Warhol famously said, “Art is what you can get away with.” Art!
I was so charmed by this Furniture Installation by Lily Van der Stokker.
If I had a Hammer this big…
This may looks like somebody dropped a bag of Yellow Onions on a board, but nothing is ever really what it appears to be at these events.
For example, it’s a Pineapple (maybe), but it is also Art!
Everyone wanted to have their picture taken in front of the Giant Pizza Sculpture By Tom Friedman.
I am such a sucker for a nice pair of Red Lips.
Yes, these are tongues. And yes, everyone went”EW!” upon viewing them. Kids seem to dig them, however.
Stay tuned to The Gig for more coverage from Frieze Art Fair 2013!
Hey Everybody! Welcome to the very last day of 2012. It was a pretty good year for me here at The Gig, despite a devastating midsummer hack job to this fair site — from which we emerged even stronger and more popular — and a brief displacement of domicile due to Hurricane Sandy. In fact, I just returned late last evening from a ten day vacation in Southern California celebrating one of my favorite Christmas holidays in recent memory, so I am definitely wrapping up the year on a high note. Thanks for your readership over the past 364 days and here’s to all good things ahead in 2013! Cheers!
Oh, you know this would be fun to play at any holiday party, especially after a few drinks! Pictured is one of four different cards in this Bingo set created by Jennifer Lewis for Flavorwire. Hilarious.
