How’s it hanging? Yarmouth church re-introduced to public with unusual art installation

It's an eerie exhibition that looks like something in the running for the prestigious Turner Prize.
For suspended in ghostly space and framed by the beauty of a redundant church are hundreds of random objects, spanning chairs, tea-cups, videos and cushions that seem to float and have a life of their own.
The unusual art installation will from Monday welcome local folk into St John's Church in York Road for the first time in years, giving them a taste of all that was left behind - and a glimpse of what is to come.
Great Yarmouth Preservation Trust bought the building for £1 at the end of last year and hopes to transform it into a hub for creative industries.
Once inside conservationists found an accumulation of junk and jumble which has been strung up like conkers for the thought-provoking display.
