Lygia Pape’s Daughter Claims LG Stole Mother’s Images to Promote Mobile Phone

Paula Pape, daughter of Brazilian artist Lygia Pape (1927-2004, currently exhibiting at the Met Breuer), is suing LG Electronics, Inc., alleging that LG is using copies of Lygia Pape’s 2003 sculpture Tteia 1, C in packaging materials, advertising and promotions for its K20 V mobile phone.

“That LG and others stole [Lygia Pape’s] work for their crass commercial purposes is not only against the law, it is an affront, an ugly reminder that enormous corporations such as LG believe themselves beyond the law,” Paula Pape said.
