Powerless Structures, Fig. 101

Unveiled on Trafalgar Square’s fourth plinth two days ago, the boy on a rocking horse is quite a different sculpture than the Prada shop installation that Nordic artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset  set up in the middle of the desert in Texas in 2005. A twist on a traditional war monument, it “celebrates the heroism of growing up. It is a visual statement celebrating expectation and change rather than glorifying the past.”

Love these photos that Where The Art Is captured and posted in the LLO Flickr pool. Creative compositions. I especially like the one with the water from the fountain!

Has anyone else managed to get down there to see it yet? What do you think?
