RUBBISH will be the first thing that greets the great and good of British art and thousands of visitor who head to Regent’s Park for the Frieze Art Fair this weekend.

One of the world’s leading contemporary art fairs is back in Regent’s Park with 173 galleries and more than 1,000 artists.

Satellite events will be taking place across the capital, as well as in the ticketed fair compound, but a free sculpture exhibition in the park can give a taster of what’s on offer.

Trash (pictured) by Wolfgang Ganter and Kaj Aune is one such artwork.

It consists of a moving pile of rubbish brought from Berlin which emits sound and smoke.

There are also 15 art bicycles created by Gavin Turk for visitors to ride around the park before receiving a certificate signed by the artist declaring they have participated in a work of art.
