Sacrilege is another work of art and ingenuity featured in the Sydney Festival 2014.
It revives the monumental Stonehenge, a prehistoric monument in Wiltshire, England but this time to be enjoyed by the young and old, recreated as a life-size inflatable castle– with everyone invited to have a bounce, free.
When we were here last Sunday, a long queue of interested people, young and old who would like to try to bounce into it was already formed and the time was getting close to noon time yet the entry point was still close. Because of this queue and like other people who can’t wait, we decided to just take pictures of it, not bad anyway since no kids yet were on the run bouncing up and down except for those guys in charge of the fun going around of it, perhaps checking out if inflation is well up for enjoyment.
This is a new work by Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller has become a contemporary art feel-good hit, a family friendly collision of history and art, and just like the Luminarium, it’s another piece of art that can be enjoyed by everyone.
