Executive summary

Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller was jointly commissioned by the Greater London Authority (GLA) and Glasgow International to make a new interactive artwork, Sacrilege, as part of the London 2012 festival. Sacrilege is a full scale replica of Stonehenge as a bouncy castle. The work is fully accessible to all age ranges and is designed to hold as many as 200 users at any one time. Sacrilege toured 32 venues across the UK and was placed in several venues in London during the London 2012 Festival. Sacrilege has begun an international tour at leading international exhibitions such as Inflation! at M+ Museum for Visual Culture, Hong Kong and the Sydney International Festival 2014. This ADD only covers the exhibition of Sacrilege as part of the Perth International Arts Festival in Perth, Australia and relates only to the income through the hire fee, and the distribution of that income among the partner organisations.
