Unpredictable Turner Prize-nominated artist Marvin Gaye Chetwynd's latest work is a very hands-on sort of creation. 'The Idol' is a 21,000 square metre soft play centre – a permanent installation in Abbey Leisure Centre which is due to entertain hundreds of thousands of children in its first decade. The two-storey robotic figure features chambers, ramps and two giant's eyes for children to peer out of. Its monochrome walls and floors will be printed with collage works featuring everything from Egyptian statues to sci-fi cyborgs. Each session lasts a maximum of two hours.
