The Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square was built in 1841 with the intention of holding an equestrian statue of William IV. The statue was never made due to a lack of funds, and instead it has stood empty. In recent years the plinth has been used to house temporary art.
Inspired by 2009’s Antony Gormley’s One & Other where 2,400 people were given a chance to be on the plinth to do whatever they wished for a short amount of time, we got a little bit imaginative in the Little Angel office. What if we could take over the Fourth Plinth and brand it as the Little Angel Fourth Plinth, complete with daily puppet shows?
It wasn’t enough to just ponder this, we had to envisage it… and thus we got creative. Here is the outcome:
