The Natural World at Frieze London 2022

Ranging from Laure Prouvost’s immersive environment to Dorothy Cross’s fusion of animal forms with the human body, artists at Frieze London 2022 are preoccupied with the natural world. From October 12–16, 2022 in The Regent’s Park, visitors will encounter some of today’s most contemporary and creative perspectives on our evolving relationship with the natural world. Exploring themes including environmentalism, evolution of the landscape and the effects of capitalism on nature, gallery highlights include a group presentation will feature works by Sandra Mujinga that honour the symbiotic relationship between human and nature (Croy Nielsen, Vienna and The Approach, London, Frieze London, Stand G21). Laure Prouvost presents a sensuous, participatory solo presentation creating an immersive environment within the fair; subtly subversive, the artist challenges the viewer to engage with critical issues such as immigration, climate change, species extinction and societal polarisation (Lisson Gallery, London, Frieze London, Stand B17) Marcus Coates’s Nature Calendar (2022) compiles daily events in the natural world, drawing our attention to the world we share with other species; it highlights events that were once integral to recognizing and marking the passing of seasons, but in recent times have lost their role in our daily consciousness (Kate MacGarry, London, Frieze London, Stand A16).

Often collaborating with her brother Jake, as well as community groups, Martha Atienza’s multi-media practice is focused on “the people, the sea, and the land”. She is passionate about galvanizing support for local fisherfolk as well as advocating for marine-protected areas along the coastline, which is suffering from erosion (Silverlens Galleries, Makati City, Frieze London, IN8). Muhanned Cader’s landscape painting subtly questions the extractive capitalism of Sri Lanka’s current government. For Frieze, Cader draws from Leonard Woolf’s book, The Village in the Jungle (1913) and situates his cinematic works in the Yala National Park, which is threatened by overdevelopment (Jhaveri Contemporary, Mumbai, Frieze London, IN2).

    Palermo Publishing announces the publication of its first monograph of photography, Whereupon, a selection of images by New York photographer Allen Frame, from the late 1970s to the early 1990s, in black and white and color. Whereupon expands the premise of his recent book Fever, (color photographs of 1981), to show a broader time period with the same subject: his artist friends in their apartments and lofts and on the streets of New York.

  • Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani: Dastgāh
    Jun 4 – Oct 31, 2024
    Evergreen Brick Works
    Toronto, Canada

    How do you listen? What do you hear? Nestled in the Don River ravines amidst urban trails and the Don Valley Parkway, Dastgāh is a sound sculpture that asks visitors to open their ears and listen differently. Created by the brother and sister duo Mani Mazinani and Sanaz Mazinani, the instrument takes its title from the Farsi term “dastgāh,” and can be literally translated as a “hand” (dast) and “gāh” (way) or “set of directions,” a modal system that serves as the foundation for composition and improvisation in Iranian music.

  • Jimmy DeSana: Salvation
    Primary Information

    Salvation is a previously-unpublished artist book by Jimmy DeSana that he conceptualized shortly before his death in 1990. The publication contains 44 of the artist’s late photographic abstractions that quietly and poetically meditate on loss, death, and nothingness. Depicted within the works are images of relics, body parts, flowers, and fruits that DeSana altered using collage and darkroom manipulations to create pictures that are both intimate and other-worldly.
