Sarah Strang, Union Chapel inaugural Artist in Residence presents a new body of work


Artist Sarah Strang has collaborated with rough sleepers for her first exhibition as Artist in Residence at Union Chapel. Movement in Sleep is an installation depicting a strange imagining of a bedchamber in the hidden interior of the chapel's tower. Bedding from Londons homeless has been stitched into a series of quilts which are draped from the rafters in the chapel's tower framing the artist's bed below with vast swaying walls of fabric. Via cameras mounted above, visitors to Union Chapel can view the installation and each month, a limited number can go on an artist led climbing tour to ascend the tower.
