Venice Artists Love Crocs

One of the sculptures included in Michael Parekowhai’s current Venice installation On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer is a pair of crocs made out of bronze.  These rubbery eyesores caught Australia’s biennale representative Hany Armanious’s attention too.  In 2007 they featured prominently in his installation Year of the Pig Sty at Foxy Production in New York (below).

    Do artists need some sort of ‘permission’ to use such items as Crocs in their work without breaking intellectual copyright?
