I don't understand your question. It is already [roughly speaking] in a Faraday cage. The charged side generates an asymmetric electric field with its surroundings and as the pendulus moves, thus minimising the electric field energy.

If you put the pendulum on a friction-free track, then it'd keep moving all the way to the side of the chamber, thereby reducing the electric field generated to a very small volume. But as it lifts up against a gravitational field, so its gravitational potential increases and it is limited to how far it can move.

I suppose if you felt there was some inate force being generated, independent of the electrode's position within the electric fields in the chamber, you could seek to disprove it by fixing the electrode ridgidly within the chamber and suspending the whole chamber on a long pendulum, then you should find nothing happens, because there is no change of electric field potential with change of position of the chamber. If that experiment finds something else, then I'd say 'WoW! Interesting!'.
