Why don’t you go down to Frieze and get those lovely Chapman brothers to scribble on your money?

That'll be worth something

If you get down to London’s Frieze Art Fair today you can get those lovely Chapman Brothers – you know the ones who did the mannequins with cocks for noses and was it a little model of a McDonald’s where a massacre had taken place? Or something – to write on your money for you. They’re making the Queen into a Mr. Potato Head and a skull and it’s very funny and actually illegal…

Anyway, at the Frieze Art Fair – very hot, very cool, very collectable – in London’s glittering Regent’s Park, as well as mingling with those cheeky Chapmans (that’s them in the background: quite cute) you’ll also find…

Little figurines by Jonathan Horowitz with stuff like ‘Suicide bombers are people too’ inscribed on them (ooh, they’re controversial these NBAs – New British Artists). 

A real-life London copper (or actor) doing yoga on a mat by Italian Gianni Motti.

A car with a girl on the bonnet.  

Oh, lots of stuff that sounds rubbish when you say it but works when it’s in front of you. That’s why they call it ‘visual arts’.

Anyways, it’s on until Sunday, so quicksticks.

  1. The Chapmen Bros seem like twats to me. But I’m happy for that to be disproved.

  2. Shall we shop them to the police for defacing Her Majesty’s currency? Or would they just enjoy that?

  3. Oh, I really liked those shop dummies with cocks instead of noses. They were creepy and pervy and fun.
