Fourth Plinth Winners announced for 2012 & 2013

On a previous post i blogged about my trip down to Martin-in-the-fields to see the artists works shortlisted for the Fourth Plinth commission. Last Friday the mayor of London Boris Johnson announced the winners.

First up the 2012 winning entry is by Elmgreen and Dragset, titled 'Powerless Structures, Fig. 101' it depicts a child riding a rocking horse. There is an interview from the artists here.

The 2013 commission goes to Katharina Fritsch's blue cockerel titled 'Hahn/Cock'. Interview from the artists can be found here.

It's a shame the 'Battenberg' by Brian Griffiths didn't feature as that was my favourite out of the six shortlisted. However i'm still excited to see the winners as i'm sure they'll make a great edition to Trafalgar Square.
