It’s a Blue Chicken

2013-07-30 11.09.04There’s a blue chicken sitting atop the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square.

No, I don’t know either.

It’s been there since the end of last week and is by Katharina Fritsch, who is German, so it is called Hahn/Cock 2013.

The pigeons don’t seem to mind, and are already perching happily on the handy perches it affords.

It’s very blue, and I’m hoping it will grow on me.

  1. what would a blue chicken be made from, do you think?

    • Somewhat prosaically it appears this particular one is made from fibreglass, but really it should be bobbins and fluff and things scavenged from corners, shouldn’t it?

  2. you know what? I love the blue chicken, although I appreciate I may be in the minority on this one….

    • It’s sort of growing on me….. I get the whimsy and the jokiness of it, but still……


Do let me know what you think.......
