The north-west plinth in Trafalgar Square is undoubtedly one of the most talked-about and photographed public art spaces in the country. Having lain empty and unused for a century and a half, it was first used to host temporary sculptures in 1998, after the Royal Society of Arts launched the Fourth Plinth Project.
In the 17 years since, the Fourth Plinth has been host to a string of intriguing pieces from some of the world’s most revered contemporary artists, whose work wonderfully offsets the smart yet rather fusty sculptures of military greats that sit on the square’s other three corners.
