Working directly with the artists, Sedition brings you Scandinavian design duo Elmgreen and Dragset’s Powerless Structures, Fig. 101, a sculpture of a boy astride his rocking horse. The sculpture, a commentary on traditional sculptures and war monuments, was originally cast in bronze for the Fourth Plinth of Trafalgar Square. Placed on the plinth, the child is elevated to the status of a Roman hero, yet he has no history to commemorate; only a future to hope for.
Elmgreen and Dragset: "We wanted to create a public sculpture which, rather than dealing with topics of victory or defeat, honors the everyday battles of growing up." This work celebrates the ephemeral heroism of childhood and the hope of future generations to come and is available exclusively through Sedition.
