Blue Chicken flies into Trafalgar Square

The latest sculpture on the fourth plinth at Trafalgar Square is certainly colourful.  Katharina Fritch’s 14ft (4.3m) work has now been unveiled, not without controversy.  You either love it or hate it, but the rooster is keeping a careful watch on Nelson.  Perhaps in reality it would be better outside Tate Modern where is could relate to other artworks inside such as Blue by Yves Klein.

When submitting her work to the Fourth Plinth Commissioning Group, German artist Ms Fritch said it was designed to symbolise regeneration, awakening and strength.

    I’m not saying that it is not somehow, somewhat, compelling, but I am at a loss to see how it symbolizes “regeneration, awakening and strength.”
