The Fourth Plinth is the northwest plinth in Trafalgar Square in central London. It was originally intended to hold an equestrian statue of William IV, but remained bare due to insufficient funds. For over 150 years the fate of the plinth was debated and in 1998 a public enquiry sought opinions from public art commissioners, critics and members of the public as to the future of the plinth. The final report recommended that the commissions remain a rolling programme of temporary artworks rather than settling permanently on one figure or idea to commemorate. In 2003, the ownership of Trafalgar Square was transferred from Westminster City Council to the Mayor of London and this marked the beginning of the Mayor of London’s Fourth Plinth Commission as it is now known.

The first Fourth Plinth sculpture of this Virtual Cache was Really Good by David Shrigley.

The Invisible Enemy Should Not Exist by Michael Rakowitz.
