‘Hirst’s Shark Tank’ and ‘Emin’s Bed’ (2006) by the Little Artists, Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool

John Cake and Darren Neave (known as the Little Artists) question what it means to be an artist in a climate where art is a commodity. For just a few pounds, these works suggest, you can own your own Damien Hirst or Tracey Emin – indeed, you can build it yourself using a simple kit.

Yet these aren’t available in the museum gif shop – they’re one-off pieces in their own right, responding faithfully to the originals. Pretty meta.
