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).
