One Person, One Hour

24 hours a day, for 100 days on the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square - be a part of a living monument.

This summer, sculptor Antony Gormley invites you to help create an astonishing living monument. He is asking the people of the UK to occupy the empty Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square in London, a space normally reserved for statues of Kings and Generals. They will become an image of themselves, and a representation of the whole of humanity.

Every hour, 24 hours a day, for 100 days without a break, a different person will make the Plinth their own. If you're selected, you can use your time on the plinth as you like. One & Other is open to anyone and everyone from any corner of the UK. As long as you're 16 or over and are living or staying in the UK, you can apply to be part of this unforgettable artistic experiment.

Gormley says, ‘It’s a very exciting, extraordinary project – it’s a sculpture made in time. It’s an experiment about what happens when you put real life in the idealised place of art.’
