The Women’s Room review of: Frieze (part one)

Frieze 047
Possibly our favourite Frieze artwork, the floating squirrel  (he was kept in the air by magnets, very clever), The works is called The Universe is Immobile, by Agnieszka Kurant

Smart art fair Frieze opened in London this week and we popped along to check out what was hot. For us, it was the cakes and the bags (more on this in a later post), oh and we saw some good art (but not much).

The interest in art is clearly not dropping off, as the place was heaving with people and there were big queues to get in, we're not sure if anyone was buying stuff, but there were a lot of quite well dressed people looking thoughtful in front of canvasses. And we stalked Charles Saatchi for a while just to see what he was up to, not much, as it turned out.

Here are some of the pictures we would buy if we had a spare million (or two, in the case of Peter Doig).
