Work: 7 Postcard for Leytonstone

POSTCARD FOR LEYTONSTONE


A view of Leytonstone, East London inspired by photographs of the area found in Vestry House Museum photographic archive.


In this constructed visualisation Leytonstone is twinned with the town of Kaunas in Lithuania a suggestion by the artist to promote cultural exchange between the two countries and communities. This outcome followed a series of conversations that took place with local residents to discover their origins. The postcard was available for sale in Eastern European shops in the area.
