Installation artwork hanging in St James church, Piccadilly, London. It consists of clothes and shoes salvaged from Lesbos that were discarded by refugees on their arrival on the island.
I tried to imagine the lives of these hapless people and the events in their homelands that led them to escape. The clothes made me contemplate the real people behind the politics of one of the most defining issues of out time. Very moving.
Then walked past George Orwell statue "if liberty means anything at all it means the right to tell people what they do not want to hear"
