Body Frieze in London art fair

British artist Millie Brown's performance installation Rainbow Body is almost like a scene from a sci-fi movie where bodies are suspended and preserved in liquids in sub-zero temperatures.

Here, she is suspended from the ceiling with strings of crystals hanging from her body, at Gazelli Art House in London on Wednesday.

Her installation was displayed on the sidelines of the Frieze art fair, a vast showcase for contemporary art that opened this week in Regent's Park.

Frieze began 13 years ago as a pop-up show, organised by then art student Damien Hirst, who is now internationally renowned.

This year, 164 galleries from 27 countries are represented in the contemporary art section of the sprawling fair.

The event closes tomorrow.
