Sanctuary was created for the immersive Beyond the Road exhibition staged at the Saatchi Gallery in 2019. The show merged the worlds of visual art, music and film in a reconstruction of audio and visual elements from the UNKLE albums The Road: Part I and The Road: Part II / Lost Highway. This multi-sensory experience filled the entire top floor of the Gallery and included works by many contemporary artists and filmmakers.

Beyond the Road was an independent project created by Colin Nightingale (Punchdrunk), Stephen Dobbie (Punchdrunk) and James Lavelle (UNKLE) in collaboration with the Saatchi Gallery. The project was supported by Punchdrunk as part of its Research and Development Programme into new forms of immersive audience experience.
