'We have a number of works which address diasporic communities. One of these is a fragment of the Serpentine Gallery Pavilion by Counterspace and Sumayya Vally, who is a South African architect. The team has gone into particular communities and buildings in London, for example the first mosques, hair-salons, Notting Hill Carnival and they have taken pieces of architecture and combined them and spliced them, and here they’ve created a gathering space. And in a way, it’s a kind of a microcosm of Frieze Sculpture because every year when we make this exhibition in the English Gardens of Regent’s Park, we see people who wouldn’t normally come here, and have conversations that they wouldn't normally have and enjoy this communal space in a very very safe way.'
