In this video from VernissageTV, San Francisco-based artist Stephanie Syjuco discusses her project for Frieze this year Copystand: an autonomous manufacturing zone, where Syjuco facilitated a workshop producing copies, handmade by artists, of 3D work on sale during the fair by other artists. In the clip, she terms the process "object karaoke" - suggesting that the artists involved contribute their own voice to their duplications. In a way, it seems like a sculpture-based version of Copyshop, B'L'ing or Werkplaats Typografie's copy station at the NY Art Book Fair. Maybe the time has come for someone to bring all of these bootleggers together in a group show?
