Fourth Plinth - Six new ideas

Over the weekend i popped in to The Foyer, St Martin-in-the-Fields to look at the artists who have been shortlisted to propose a new artwork for the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square. After being slightly distracted by the shop i had a look through and took these photos.

Fourth Plinth, Six new ideas from artists; Allora & Calzadilla, Elmgree & Dragset, Katharina Fritsch, Brian Griffiths, Hew Locke, Mariele Neudecker

Allora & Calzadilla's - Untitled (ATM Organ), presents a working cash machine embedded within the Fourth Plinth which, when accessed, will trigger a functioning pipe organ. The other stand out artwork for me was Brian Griffiths' - Battenberg, is an out sized representation of the sponge cake. The work will be made from hand crafted Victorian, Edwardian and contemporary household bricks along with other transitional building materials.
