Saddler Street

Discover a fantasy escape route

A secret stairway to heaven, Echelle disappears like a dream into the vegetation above. This pink neon ladder was first exhibited here in this quiet yard next to Saddler Street as part of the first ever Lumiere in 2009. The artwork has been shown in many locations across Europe and more recently was installed on the spire of St Martin-in-the-Fields church in Trafalgar Square for Lumiere London 2018.
