We’re not in London for the 14th Frieze art fair, which opens to the public tomorrow. But VIP preview guests have already thoroughly documented the fair via social media.

What does a face found in a pile of glue, an umbrella that gives you the finger when opened, and a dancing butt have in common? Primarily, they’re all images we found on our Instagram feeds. But perhaps more importantly, they’re the kind of images you’d expect to find if you landed in 150th wing of the Internet and discovered a very strange party going on.

Last August, the Canadian artist served notice to the owners of Old School, a Toronto restaurant, demanding the immediate removal and destruction of a neon sign that bears a striking resemblance to her 2006 work, “I Called Shotgun Infinity When I Was Twelve”. The neon copy is exactly the same in text, layout, and color. Only the font and size of the piece differs.
