A new piece of art will capture glimpses of life in Muswell Hill through small scraps of paper – but it needs local residents’ help to be completed.
Artist Anya Beaumont (left) needs local residents to donate anything from old shopping lists and envelopes to a simple piece of paper with a few scribbles so she can finish her latest piece, Mapping Muswell – an N10 Paper Project.
The sculpture, which will adorn the wall of Muswell Hill Library after it is finished later this year, is based around a street map of the N10 postcode.
Ms Beaumont said: “I am using scraps of paper which would normally be recycled but have some traces of the people who have used them.”
People can see Ms Beaumont at work as she takes up a three day residency at the Local Gallery, Avenue Mews, from Friday.
