4th Plinth News
It has been announced that the work to replace Katharina Fritsch's Giant Blue Cock on the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square will be Hans Haacke's skeletal Gift Horse with a live ticker tape of the London Stock Exchange on an electric ribbon tied to its leg. Groan! This will be erected in 2015, to be followed in 2016 by David Shrigley's bronze thumbs up sign Really Good, which looks to me like a fist gripping a giant phallus. CLICK to view both models.
