Elmgreen & Dragset: Powerless Structures, Fig 101Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset, an artist duo based in Berlin and London, have brought a bronze sculpture of a child on a rocking horse to The Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square. Setting this small child alongside the great military heroes who occupy the neighbouring plinths challenges notions of victory and defeat. With his life ahead of him, the child on the rocking horse (officially called Powerless Structures, Fig. 101) faces his own battles and triumphs every day. The artists Elmgreen and Dragset may not be well known to the average viewer but they have held numerous solo exhibitions in major art institutions worldwide, including London's Serpentine Gallery and Tate Modern, and amongst their most well known works are Prada Marfa - a full scale replica of a Prada boutique in the middle of the Texan desert. They will also be the subject of a major exhibition at the Victoria and Albert Museum in the autumn of 2013.

 

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.
