Deller unveiled the gargantuan bouncy castle, dubbed Sacrilege, back in 2012 at the Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art. It then headed to London for the Olympic Games where it delighted international visitors to the capital.The witty inflatable architecture delighted adults and children alike, engaging with the notion of play and history while poking fun at the British reputation for being uptight.

Speaking on BBC Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs, Deller said: ‘I just wanted to make the most stupid artwork ever made.’

Sacrilege is now open at Oakley Court Hotel in Windsor every weekend in September.
