"An evocative artwork highlighting the plight of refugees around the world was to be hung in the Nave of Canterbury Cathedral.
Suspended by the British artist Arabella Dorman is made up of hundreds of items of refugee clothing, found largely on the beaches of the Greek island of Lesbos and kindly donated by the Starfish Foundation and the Dirty Girls of Lesvos charities.
The clothing appears to hover approximately three metres above the ground and the installation is lit from the centre so that the clothes are seen clearly and then lost in shadow. As the installation brightens, it represents the light of hope by which a refugee is carried forwards. As it dims, it seeks to remind the viewer that refugees may be left unseen and in darkness if their situation is forgotten.
Included amongst the clothes hung in Canterbury are those left behind in the makeshift camps set up in Calais."
