FRIEZE London 2012

Wondering through the busy corridors of the greatest contemporary art fair in London, my eyes did not know where to look with so many works of art in display. The spinning disco balls, Valeska Soares’s Stop Motion (2012), gladly came as a relaxing device for my bombarded mind. She generally provokes sensations and plays with the viewer’s perception. This piece had her signature all over, a path, a labyrinth of mirrored surfaces, a material she commonly uses. It surely was a very good card played by Fortes Vilaça Gallery from São Paulo. They also showed the aesthetically intriguing assemblages from Rodrigo Matheus. A Gentil Carioca from Rio de Janeiro showed woven and beaded pieces by Maria Nepomuceno, one of the highlights featuring on Victoria Miro’s space as well, that showed Yayoi Kusama along with the embroidered tapestry panels by Grayson Perry. Hairy humanoids from Huma Mulji and pink seals at Gagosian were powerful contestants for the Disney-like pieces.
