Jeremy Herbert. Frieze Projects at Frieze Art Fair 2015

Frieze Projects is a non-profit programme of artists’ commissions realised annually at Frieze London and supported by the LUMA Foundation. One of the commissioned artists is Jeremy Herbert.

“Drawing on his experience creating experimental theatre sets, artist Jeremy Herbert will build an underground chamber beneath the fair. This mysterious space, filled with wind, will evoke strong associations of memory and place.

Jeremy Herbert is an award-winning, multi-media artist and stage designer who has worked with artists as diverse as John Tavener, Michael Nyman and Madonna. He has had a long connection with the Royal Court Theatre, where he collaborated with Sarah Kane, designing the acclaimed premieres of Cleansed (1998) and 4.48 Psychosis (2000). Currently, Herbert is Associate Designer at the Young Vic, working on productions including Hamlet (2012), The Glass Menagerie (2011), Blackta (2014), and his experimental theatre installation Safe House (2014) in collaboration with Gabriella Sonabend. Herbert works internationally as an opera designer, most recently on the premiere of Beat Furrer’s La Bianca Notte in Hamburg (2015), and Richard Jones’ production of Rodelinda at the ENO (2014). Winner of the 2004 NESTA Award, Herbert has created installations and immersive performances with the Ruhr Triennale (2011) and Artangel (2003).”
