The winner of the 2015 Frieze Artist Award is Rachel Rose. Supported by the LUMA Foundation, the Frieze Artist Award allows an emerging artist to realise a major commission at Frieze London as part of the critically acclaimed Frieze Projects programme.
At Frieze London 2015, Rose will create a scale-model of the fair structure. Inside, lighting and sound design will simulate the sonic and visual sense frequencies of animals inhabiting the Regent’s Park. Drawing attention to the park’s multiple layers of communication and perception, Rose will open up a spectrum of sensory worlds for fair visitors to inhabit and experience. This commission invites Rose – who has previously worked in film – to pursue an ambitious installation-based project.
Rose’s proposal was selected from over 1,200 applications by artists from all over the world. The selection committee for the Frieze Artist Award 2015 was Bonnie Camplin (artist), Raimundas Malasauskas (curator and writer), Hans Ulrich Obrist (Co-director of Exhibitions and Programmes and Director of International Projects at the Serpentine Gallery, London) and Nicola Lees (Curator, Frieze Projects), with Frieze Artistic Director Jo Stella-Sawicka acting as chair.
