Berlin-based ISCP alumni Elmgreen and Dragset have been nominated as shortlisted artists for the Fourth Plinth commission in London’s Trafalgar Square. The plinth, built in 1841, was originally intended for an equestrian statue but since 1999 has hosted a series of controversial public works by artists including Rachel Whiteread, Antony Gormley and most recently Yinka Shonibare.
The scale models of the proposals for the plinths will be shown in August, and the selected artist will be announced in early 2011.
