John-Paul Stonard said that the best thing in this year’s Frieze was an exhibition by Jodie Carey at St. Cyprian’s, Clarence Gate. Since I was familiar with neither church nor artist, I thought I would check them out.

The installation by Jodie Carey works well in the space – spiky and suitably gothic too:-
