Christo
Galeria Joan Prats - Beach Umbrella Sketch

1986

About the Item

Galeria Joan Prats. Exhibition poster - created on the occasion of the 1986 exhibition. In great condition Christo (Christo Wladimirow Jawaschew, born 1935 in Bulgaria, died 2020 in New York) and Jeanne-Claude (Jeanne-Claude Marie Denat, born 1935 in Casablanca, died 2009 in New York) created a number of world-famous installations as an artist couple. With 'L'Arc de Triomphe, Wrapped' (18 September - 03 October 2021), Christo and Jeanne-Claude's last project was realised posthumously. As an artist collective, the pair realised monumental sculptures and installations for over 45 years, often draping and/or wrapping large sections of landscapes, industrial objects and buildings with a special type of fabric. An important part of the large-scale projects were preliminary drawings, project sketches and objects, and later photographic documentation, which were sold by Christo and Jeanne-Claude to finance the costly projects from the beginning. The installations, on the other hand, were always temporary and the materials recycled afterwards. In the sense of an ecological aesthetic, the works have their legitimacy purely in memory, dedicated to the ephemeral and transient, by not adding more monuments to an already crowded world. With wrapping projects that have transformed buildings and landscapes into abstract objects, such as'Wrapped Coast', Australia, 'The Pont Neuf, Wrapped', Paris, France or 'The Gates - New York Central Park', Christo and Jeanne-Claude have gained worldwide attention and fame as 'wrapping artists'.

    By Ajay Malghan
    Located in New York, NY
    Ajay Malghan is an American artist and son of immigrant parents from India. His mother was usually found combining cultures at home, and his father, a Materials Scientist and Engineer often brought him to the lab. The daily experimentations happening around him, both personal and scientific, would later inform his work. While his parents wanted him to follow more straightforward career paths, he was the first in his family to eschew their expectations and pursue art and music instead. Malghan went on to receive an MFA in Photography from Savannah College of Art and Design - Hong Kong. Here he experimented in a darkroom, bleaching film, adding watercolor to glass plates, thinly cross-sectioning fruits and vegetables until they formed abstractions, beginning his exploration into the repurposing of materials. In his twenties, Malghan was diagnosed with Leukemia, the treatment of which resulted in avascular necrosis, a bone disease that eventually required numerous surgeries and three hip replacements. His experience through illness and recovery not only led him to photography, but also informs his manipulation of raw, often overlooked materials in order to reorient our understanding of beauty, pleasure, and purpose. Malghan has been exhibited across the country and has lectured in Hong Kong, India, the University of Texas, the University of Notre Dame - Maryland, and UMLAUF Sculpture & Design Museum. He most recently has been commissioned by The Walters Art Museum, and his work is in the private collections of Johns Hopkins University, the University of Texas, and Georgetown University...
