An artist has unveiled her new brightly coloured at a park that has been created in the Brent Cross Town development.

Rainbow Ribbons by Hanna Benihoud features by the ice-cream parlour at the newly opened Claremont Park.

It is a large-scale installation fashioned from steel and powder-coated in an array of rainbow colours. The steel ribbons float down in continuous wavy lines in front of the kiosk with the aim of injecting a sense of colour and play.

Hanna said: "We wanted the artwork to have a focus on play and sport, so I spent a sunny day in the park with a load of brilliant local children of all ages – from toddlers right through to teenagers – playing with colours and shapes to see what inspired them.

"I wanted to find a physical activity that would intuitively encourage a sense of playful coming together. The process from beginning to end has been collaborative.

"From local kids, to photographers, to architects and fabricators. Everyone has their hand’s mould in this piece of artwork."

To create the installation, Hanna collaborated with The White Wall Company describing the process as “experimental” and fun. The metal workers heated the steel with blowtorches so that it was molten and could be manipulated - they then had to work fast to mould the steel into a spiral before leaving it to cool.

Chloe Bodur, from Gussys Ice Cream parlour, hailed the artwork saying: "Hanna’s design, with its beautiful bright colours, unique style and playful structure that the children weave in and out of during play, really captures the utopian feeling of the new park and makes the environment even more creative and inspiring.

"It’s a beautiful addition to the park that’s already bought our community closer together and we’re so excited to have it as part of our space at the kiosk."
