Frieze Masters – The Aslyum

This is my last post about Frieze I promise. But I wanted to share a really special installation at Frieze Masters separately.  This special installation is by Helly Nahmad Gallery and it is based around works by Jean Dubuffet that were influenced by work that he saw in asylums in France and Switzerland.

There was nothing else like this at the fair so it was a real breath of fresh air to see it. A totally different way to show are works and how they are influenced. The set designer was by Robin Brown who is a world renowned set designer for the likes of Madonna and Robbie Williams.

It’s a really interesting way to show art, I think we’ll see more of this

Here are a few pics
