Powerless Structures: Fig 101

'A bronze boy on a rocking horse will bound on to the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square on Thursday. Why have Elmgreen and Dragset made him so camp?'

The Guardian.
Camp - a codeword for gay.
This is unveiled on Thursday - very Two Little Boys, methinks.
My favourite song when I was a kid.
"We are Scandinavian, maybe we can't help it. Boys grow up still thinking they need to be a hero. Trafalgar Square is a symbol of that. It is so masculine. We are talking about a different kind of masculinity."
- Elmgreen & Dragset.
Fagburn now - officially - acknowledges this as a masterpiece.
