Sacrilege in the city.....!
This sight may look 'vaguely ' familiar to you but I bet you didn't expect to see it 'pop' up in Perth. I did say vaguely and I did say pop.. literally :) Created by English artist Jeremy Deller the inflatable interactive sculpture Sacrilege is in the Supreme Court Gardens as part of the Perth Festival. This ancient shrine replica of Stonehenge is a 'bouncy castle'.. some might say sacrilege, I say it's all good fun.. the chap below certainly had an excellent time :) If you have a quick look at the installation here in Olympic Park London you'll see that the weather conditions couldn't possibly be more different, it was 37C (maybe more, definitely not less) here yesterday, so hot that the plastic had to be hosed down with cold water between sessions!
We arrived a little early and watched with amusement as the pumps started up.. each part of the 'formation' began to rise slowly, and then boing .. straight up.. funny! There will be no rituals in the moonlight around these nightly deflated rocks :) We were in the city last night to see another Fringe World gig, La belle Epoque.. ooo! la! la! tell you about it tomorrow.. This week has zipped by for me, how about you? Have a good Friday, take care.....
