Frieze Art Fair

Hey guys. Sorry I haven't posted in ages, I've been really ill recently.
Anyways this thursday I went to the Frieze Art Fair in London for my A-level Art, and let me tell ya, it was fricking amazing!
It claims to be the only fair that focuses on contemporary art and living artists and is held in some sort of massive tent in the middle of Regent's Park. Sadly the fair is already over, but if you want to go next year I can highly recommend it. Tickets cost around 25 pounds, but even if you don't pay there are a lot of artworks displayed outside which you can see for free.
If you do decide to pay for the inside, it is definitely worth it. However you will need good footwear and a calm and collected person with you, if you are like me and get lost easily. Moreover do not bring a backpack as for some reason they say you could hit the artwork with it but weirdly handbags are allowed (typical security problems). I made the mistake to bring my backpack and spent the afternoon carrying things like water, camera, maps and so on in my hands. Also I had to store my backpack in the cloakroom and collect it afterwards which took absolutely ages. Not fun. I loved all the artworks tho, it felt as if wherever you looked and walked there were new things to see and by the end I was exhausted by all the impressions. Supercool were the artists that had life action going on, such as weird dancers or people standing around with bags on their hands. There was even some kind of chemist there who made you stick your hands in weird substances :D Anyway enough of the talking, here are some of my favourite pictures.
