Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square
Katharina Fritsch’s proposal Hahn / Cock is a giant cockerel in ultramarine blue. In the setting of the square this extraordinary animal, its unnatural scale and bold colour, renders the situation unreal, bringing a sense of hallucination and uncertainty to the genteel Georgian architecture. The cockerel, a popular motif in modernist art, symbolises regeneration, awakening and strength. The sculpture will be unveiled in 2013.
