Fourth Plinth: Heather Phillipson THE ENDLondon born artist Heather Philipson puts an ice cream with a cherry on top on The Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square. This is no end-of-the-pier display. Two flies buzz around the giant ice cream cone but, on closer inspection, one is a drone, both are parasites. The fly, used to represent the fleeting nature of life throughout art history, becomes the fly on the wall or the fly in the ointment in this setting. With the ice cream melting down the plinth itself, the unstable installation becomes a monument to impending collapse.

 

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.
