Fourth Plinth whipped cream and fly sculpture unveiled at Trafalgar Square
Telegraph, 30 Jul 2020
A sculpture depicting a whirl of cream topped with parasites has been unveiled in London's Trafalgar Square.
The installation on the Fourth Plinth - home to a rolling commission of public artworks - was postponed by four months because of the impact of coronavirus.
But the "dystopian" artwork - topped with a cherry, a drone and a fly - has now been unveiled.
Passers-by will be able to use their mobile phones to live-stream what the camera-equipped drone can see or people can log in to a website remotely.
Described as representing "exuberance and unease" and a "monument to hubris and impending collapse", The End, by British artist Heather Phillipson, will stay in place until spring 2022.
The 13th Fourth Plinth commission is the tallest so far - at nearly 31ft (9.4m).
