Antony Gormley

ONE & OTHER, FOURTH PLINTH COMMISSION, TRAFALGAR SQUARE, LONDON, 2009

6 July - 14 October 2009

Antony Gormley's proposal ONE & OTHER is that the Fourth Plinth is occupied for 100 consecutive days, 24 hours a day, by members of the public who have volunteered to stand on it for an hour at a time. 2,400 people will be able to participate. Visit the ONE & OTHER website to register your interest. "The idea is very simple. Through putting a person onto the plinth, the body becomes a metaphor, a symbol. In the context of Trafalgar Square with its military, valedictory and male historical statues, this elevation of everyday life to the position formerly occupied by monumental art allows us to reflect on the diversity, vulnerability and particularity of the individual in contemporary society. It's about people coming together to do something extraordinary and unpredictable. It could be tragic but it could also be funny." Antony Gormley, 2009
