A remake of an old favourite


Hyde Park North, Sydney, is crowded out at the moment with various installations and attractions as part of the Sydney Festival. Behind the Archibald Fountain it is hard to miss what, at first take, is Stonehenge except that it wobbles around. The timeless monument has been re-imagined as an inflatable jumping castle, Sacrilege, by Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller. Children and anyone really can get on and meet head on with history in a different way to how it’s usually presented.

And it’s free.

Sacrilege was commissioned by Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art and The Mayor of London for the London 2012 Festival. Courtesy of the artist and The Modern Institute, Glasgow (from website).

  1. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could undeniably be one of the very best in its field. Great blog!

  2. I am not sure where you’re getting your information, but good topic. I needs to spend some time learning more or understanding more. Thanks for great information I was looking for this info for my mission.
