Stonehenge goes on tour – Sacrilege by Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller comes to Whitstable Biennale as part of 2012 celebrations
With London 2012 Paralympic Games starting next week, Sacrilege, the life-sized inflatable replica of Stonehenge, starts 5th September as part of a tour that will see it travel to over 30 locations across the UK.
A co-commission between Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art and the Mayor of London, the work was enormously popular when, supported by Creative Scotland, it appeared in Glasgow earlier this year. With support from Arts Council England it is now travelling around the country as part of the nationwide London 2012 Festival.
Deller’s Sacrilege is a light-hearted way for people to think about one of the UK’s most iconic historic monuments.
Sacrilege, 1st until 16th September, Whitstable Biennale, Horsebridge Road, Whitstable, Kent CT5 1AF
