About

The new commission for the Fourth Plinth, Hahn / Cock by artist Katharina Fritsch was unveiled in July in Trafalgar Square.

The giant blue bird replaced Elmgreen and Dargset’s sculpture Powerless Structures fig. 101, the boy on the rocking horse.

Commissioned by the Mayor of London as part of the Fourth Plinth Commissioning Programme, the 4.7m (15 foot) high sculpture will occupy the empty plinth for 18 months.

Born in Germany, Fritsch is a leading internationally recognised contemporary artist; she has exhibited widely particularly across Europe and the USA.

The Fourth Plinth is the most high profile and provocative contemporary art prize in the UK. The scheme commissions world-class artists to make challenging new works for the historic heart of the capital, aiming to trigger public debate about contemporary art in London's public spaces.
