Checking my emails as I was on the Stansted Express back to London after holidays, I found that I’d been picked to take part in Antony Gormley’s One & Other Fourth Plinth project. Having only entered on a whim, it was a bit of a surprise!
So I’ll be up there at 11am on the 28th of September, feeling, I’m sure, like a complete lemon.
I’ve got mixed feelings about what to do with my hour. It seems a shame for the plinth to be a platform for a stream of adverts (for causes, for the plinthers themselves etc). I feel it would be more of a statement just to, well, be up there. Doing nothing. Being me. Being a lemon. But to be honest, doing nothing sounds scarier than hiding behind a cause, so I think that is what I’ll do!
