Stonehenge

17 Oct

All arguments that coming to Paris was a bad idea are now null and void. Why? Because Paris has a inflatable Stonehenge art installation… that you can bounce on.

Yeah, let that sink in for a moment. Right next to Invalides, they have a giant bouncy-house that looks like a Stone Age megalith.

 

According to the literature on the site, this is “Sacrilege” by Jeremy Deller. “The work represents the famous temple of Stonehenge, a megalithic monument located in Great Britain. By re-imagining Stonehenge as an inflatable artwork, accessible to everyone, the artist questions the sacred and untouchable quality of spaces and emblems of power, especially that of political and religious power.”

My friend and I thought it was an insanely fun piece of art. I mean, come on.

Sacrilege is on display from Oct 16th to the 21st, from 3pm to 5:30pm. If you’re in Paris, I highly recommend you go visit.
