When it comes to choosing your favourite works at something like Frieze, it’s got to be by gut reaction. When you are overwhelmed by visual stimulus, whatever sticks in your mind is usually the strongest work. Obviously this year I'm having a sculptural moment.

I wish there had been more women in my rundown! Nonetheless, it’s nice to sneak some old favourites like Stan Van der Beek and Brassai amongst the young guns.

Here's my list:   

Paul McCarthy, Violet Bear, Yellow, at Hauser and Wirth
Jack StrangeLump Inside a Lump (swimming it), at Limoncello   
Sterling Ruby, Pewter Maxiofacial, at Taka Ishii Gallery 
BrassaïGraffiti, at Taka Ishii Gallery  
Stan Van der BeekUntitled, at The Box 
Klara Kristalova, Crows, at Alison Jacques Gallery  
FOS, One Language Traveller Set #5, at Max Wigram Gallery
