A big blue cockerel for Trafalgar Square

The next two commissions for the Fourth Plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square will include a bronze figure of a boy on a rocking horse by artists Elmgreen & Dragset and a large ultramarine cockerel (above, in case you missed it) by Katharina Fritsch

The next two commissions for the Fourth Plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square will include a bronze figure of a boy on a rocking horse by artists Elmgreen & Dragset and a large ultramarine cockerel (above, in case you missed it) by Katharina Fritsch…

Berlin and London-based artists Elmgreen & Dragset will unveil their sculpture, Powerless Structure, Fig. 101 in 2012; while Fritsch’s sculpture, Hahn/Cock, will appear in 2013.

The German artist is well known for her dense, richly coloured pieces and we think it will prove to be a great addition to the Fourth Plinth series. The cockerel apparently references the animal motifs that appear in modernist art and symbolises regeneration, awakening and strength.

Moreover, Fritsch has said that she wanted to create something that was both serious and humorous and that would stand out against the greyness of the square’s existing architecture.
