Antony Gormley opens Trafalgar plinth invitation

Artist Antony Gormley is looking for 2,400 volunteers to take a turn on the fourth plinth in London’s Trafalgar square

The work, called One & Other, will run 24 hours a day for 100 days, from 6 July to 14 October.

Each person will spend an hour on the plinth and can fill the time as they chose.

‘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,’ said Gormley.

‘It’s about people coming together to do something extraordinary and unpredictable. It could be tragic but it could also be funny.’
