More than 2,400 people will occupy Trafalgar Square’s fourth plinth over 100 days as part of a living artwork.
Antony Gormley won the opportunity to showcase ‘The One and the Other’. His work will allow volunteers to stand on the plinth, for one hour at a time.
“Through elevation onto the plinth and removal from common ground, the body becomes a metaphor, a symbol and allows us to reflect on the diversity, vulnerability and particularity of the individual in contemporary society.”

“We’ll try and get her the coveted 3am slot,” said a spokesman
