Past Squares Day #9
In a past holiday we came across this blue cockerel in Trafalgar Square in London. It was certainly an eye catching piece of art and stood proudly on the Fourth Plinth for some time. The artist was Katharina Fritsch.
The press release issued by those who chose it as the winner of the commission stated:
The sculpture … communicates on different levels. First of all is the consideration of the formal aspect of its placement: the mostly grey architecture of Trafalgar Square would receive an unexpectedly strong colour accentuation, the size and colour of the animal making the whole situation surreal or simply unusual. The cockerel is also a symbol for regeneration, awakening and strength and finally, the work refers, in an ironic way, to male-defined British society and thoughts about biological determinism.Source
These are some of my favourite square blue shots from my archives – a blue door, blue sky with fluffy white clouds, blue sky and green paddocks, tree &blue lake under a blue sky.
Becky has her Squares challenge going again for the month of October, where we can share any photo as long as it’s square, on the theme of Past something – these are some of the past themes for squares so there’s lots of choice! Today I chose the past square theme of Blue.
Have a great week.
