Fancy a bounce on Stonehenge? Sacrilege is coming!

Fancy a bounce on Stonehenge? Sacrilege is coming!

Jeremy Deller’s life-sized inflatable replica of Stonehenge, Sacrilege, is upping sticks from its Glasgow home, and bouncing around the UK…

A co-commission between Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art and the Mayor of London (Boris isn’t just all about the bikes you know), Sacrilege was a bit of a hit when it popped up in Glasgow earlier this year. Now, with support from Arts Council England, it’s romping around the country as part of London 2012 Festival.

Jeremy Deller says:

A lot of my work deals with history, and Sacrilege is no exception, this is a way to get reacquainted with ancient Britain with your shoes off.

Want to be famous for 15 seconds or so? Well, you can upload photos of you and your inflatable-loving friends bouncing around on the installation onto Flickr to create a gigantic on-line clan (apparently). To check opening times and local weather conditions for each venue, you could probably do worse than following Sacrilege on Twitter @Sacrilege2012.
