Call that art …

No doubt to the consternation of people whose veins start popping when the Turner Prize shortlist is announced, Antony Gormley’s One & Other has now taken over the fourth plinth of Trafalgar Square.

Going beyond ecce hommo – by other modern family favourite Mark Wallinger – to having life sized statues that are also alive the plinth will be occupied in hour long chunks for the next few months.

This is artist Christine Sharman coping with the elements. If it had started last week the participants would have enjoyed the sunshine — this week they’re in danger of being washed away.

See the ‘action’ here. And this image large here.
