In Chains comes out of a new collaboration between artists and mental health activists the vacuum cleaner (UK) and Hana Madness (Indonesia). Following research undertaken in July 2018, the project explores the practice of shackling people with mental health disabilities (known as pasung) which still takes place in some areas of Indonesia, and a desire to challenge and make this visible, both within Indonesia and globally.

Both Hana and James have lived experience of mental health disability, no formal training as artists and a shared wish to use art as a means to change the perception of both their own and others experiences of disability. 

The project has been supported by the UK/ID Season 2016-18, which aims to develop and support relationships between Indonesian and UK artists.
