Turns out Yelp isn’t only useful as a go-to website for dining destination consensus. For Kelly Mark, it’s an effective way to pressure a restaurant to remove its unauthorized copy of an artwork.
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.
