F100 Winner for August

F100 Winner for August

25 August 2012 Email this article

 Congratulations to Nigel Hunton our f100 winner for August. Nigel's shot captures one of our Nifty Xtrax 17s at work in Trafalgar Square.

The Nifty rough terrain boom is at work cleaning down the latest sculpture on the 4th plinth, a 4.1m high bronze sculpture of a boy on a rocking horse.

Funded by the Mayor of London and Arts Council England, the sculpture will remain in place for a year.

Artists Michael Elmgreen and Ingar Dragset say Powerless Structures, Fig 101 questions "monuments predicated on military victory or defeat".

The artists said, in a statement, that "the image of a young boy astride his rocking horse encourages viewers to consider the less spectacular events in their lives which are often the most important".
