The Sanctuary is a contemplative space supporting the human, emotional and spiritual needs of all who use the hospital including patients, visitors, and staff.
Textile artist Sharon Ting has created a series of artworks to help people find solace and comfort. They are designed to bring welcome, reassurance and inspiration to this space.
Sharon’s artworks which are integrated into the build and will inform the interior design of the space.
Reflection by Marc Burden and Sharon Ting
This series of photographs of the Brighton horizon taken at different times of the day invites patients, carers, visitors and staff to reflect by writing messages, thoughts, and memories on cards which they can then place on the shelf underneath the artwork.
Calm by Sharon Ting
These beautiful floor-to-ceiling glass panels in front of the window enhance and frame the view of the sea. The panels cast subtle colour reflections and textured shadows to create a soothing and calm atmosphere. The hand-made textiles enclosed within them bring a soft, tactile element to the Sanctuary.
Contemplation by Sharon Ting
The delicate hand-made textile encased in a backlit wall-mounted box sits behind the altar, decorated with another hand-made textile, to delineate and honour an area for quiet contemplation.
