The London Art Fair in Islington was in top form this year, with a good selection of emerging galleries and Artists in 'Art Projects'. The section featured 30 international solo and group exhibitions. My personal favourite was WW Gallery's 'Supermarket Sweep' an installation of a superstore for Contemporary Art.

Running this week, London Art Fair 2011 features some 120 galleries and is now in its 23rd year.Vernissage visited and had this to say, “Yes, Frieze is not the only art fair in London (but the coolest – whether this is a compliment or not, I’m not sure). London Art Fair is different – very different. It’s the first time that VernissageTV visited the fair, and apart from some impressions of the fair, we spoke with the directors of three galleries. Niklas von Bartha (Partner, von Bartha Contemporary) is presenting the work of Mike Meiré, Will Lunn (Co-Director, Sumarria Lunn) has several installations by Littlewhitehad at the fair, and Debra Wilson (Co-Director, WW Gallery) talks about WW Gallery’s Art Star Superstore at London Art Fair.

The fair had plenty of playful exhibitions too, including Sadie Hennessy’s ‘Gary Glitter Glam Rock’ candy at Wilson Williams Gallery’s Art Star Superstore. Yours for £3, but as my friend said, with Glitter’s history I’m not sure I could put that in my mouth.

Another gallery exploring the economy is WW Gallery, whose Art Star Superstore features artworks in plastic bags and hanging up on rails like something in a high-street retail outlet. It's a cool idea but actually makes viewing (and therefore buying) the works kind of annoying – it both highlights and hinders the commercial nature of the fair, you might say.

Among other works, WW Gallery (London) presents a range of art “products” in a stand modeled on a superstore aisle complete with a checkout and roving promotions girl.
