Katharina Fritsch: Hahn CockA 4.7m (14ft) high sculpture of a cockerel in ultramarine blue is the latest sculpture to roost on the Fourth Plinth in the north-west corner of Trafalgar Square. German artist Katharina Fritsch says of her 'Hahn/Cock' sculpture that it is a comment on male posturing but also a symbol for regeneration, awakening and strength. Fritsch is known for her sculptures created in a single intense colour, and the larger than life blue cockerel certainly stands out from the grey buildings of Trafalgar Square. Born in 1956 in Essen, Germany, Katharina Fritsch represented Germany in the 46th Venice Biennale and has had many solo exhibitions including one at Tate Modern in London in 2001. 'Hahn/Cock' follows the statue of a boy on his rocking horse designed by the Scandinavian art duo Elmgreen & Dragset as the latest commission for the Fourth Plinth.

 

About Trafalgar Square

Lord Nelson, Britain's greatest military hero, and the mighty lions that surround him, pay testament to the position of Trafalgar Square at the heart of the capital, the heart of the nation, and, at one time, the heart of an empire that controlled three fifths of the world.
