The Brit List: Summer of London – Art and Museum Shows

5. Sacrilege

'Sacrilege' - Artist Jeremy Deller's bouncing, traveling Stonehenge (London 2012 Festival)

Another British icon isn’t located in London, but it’s traveling there this summer – sort of. To move the actual Stonehenge from Wiltshire would raise more than a few objections, so artist Jeremy Deller has created an inflatable version of the famed prehistoric monument. People can walk – and bounce – all over it. Deller has given the name “Sacrilege” to his blow-up Stonehenge because he imagines that it could still offend some people, and, he says “you might as well just get the criticism in first.” What’s not to like?
