Refugees’ clothes suspended in St James’s Church

Refugees' clothes which were found on the Greek Island of Lesbos have been suspended from the roof of St James's Church in Piccadilly to raise awareness of the ongoing humanitarian crisis.

The war artist Arabella Dorman installed the 700 items of clothing and says she hopes the piece, called ‘Suspended’, will remind others of the trauma faced by those who have fled from conflict.

Actor, Sir Derek Jacobi, is a supporter of Arabella’s work and spoke to London Live about the striking installation.

‘Suspended’ is on display at St James's Church, Piccadilly, until February 9th.
