About this work



Physical description

Audio file duration: 00:13:39 Format of original recording: wav 44.1 khz 16 bit MicportPro.


Stewart Cockett is from Woking in Surrey. A friend of his is a sculpture and was approached to do a statue of Sir Keith Park for the fourth plinth; this eventually didn't happen. He is doing the project to show his friend's images for the sculpture. He planned to paint himself to match the image but thought it would be too expensive so is bringing the image blown up. He also plans to phone the artist Roderick while on the plinth. He is wearing a t-shirt with the head of the Keith Park bust on. He describes himself as ordinary, quiet, a musician and retired. Health, and an active life are important to him. He plays jazz guitar as an amateur, his wife has worked in dance and is now a psychotherapist. He enjoys tai chi.
