‘Next year Trafalgar Square’s fourth plinth will hold an enormous dollop of whipped cream, topped with a cherry, a fly and a buzzing drone. Created by British artist and author Heather Phillipson, that sugar-rush sculpture – surreal, witty and grotesque – captures the essence of her poetry.’ – Tristram Fane Saunders, The Telegraph (choosing Whip-hot & Grippy as his Poetry Book of the Month for April 2019)
