Round round baby, round round...

A highlight of last year's Frieze Sculpture Park was Lars Fisk's Tudor Ball: cute and comical, it flaunted Fisk's obsession with the sphere, and how the device can be used to frame everyday objects.

This February, the New York-based sculptor has his first UK solo exhibition. From 4 February-14 March, you'll be able to ogle Fisk's spheroid take on art, with Tudor Ball appearing alongside seven other pieces including a round canal houseboat, a BMW sports cars, and a pair of hand-sewn lederhosen.

Deceptively simple, the sculptures are crafted from the actual materials of their subject; Tudor Ball, for instance, involved the craft tradition of thatching, and wattle and daub, which gives this exhibition its name.
