Air compressors will be helping a life-size replica of Stonehenge to pop up in various places across the UK between June 21st and September 9th.
While the methods used in the construction of the real Stonehenge are still a source of debate, Jeremy Deller’s public artwork Sacrilege simply needs a few minutes hooked up to air compressors.
That’s because it’s a fully functional bouncy castle, with a grass-like green base and air-filled standing ‘stones’ that are textured to look like the real thing.
It’s part of the London 2012 Festival, a range of individual events taking place throughout the summer to celebrate the Cultural Olympiad, which runs alongside the London 2012 Summer Olympic Games.
Deller, a Turner-prize-winning artist, created Sacrilege to the original Stonehenge’s full proportions, giving it a circular base that measures 35 metres across.
The exact locations where it is due to appear have not been announced, but it should be hard to miss for any passers-by.
And if you’re keen to have your turn bouncing around between the standing stones, you’ll be pleased to hear that the artwork should be free to access.
