CHRISTO 'WRAPPED FLOORS - 1984', HAND SIGNED OFFSET LITHOGRAPH

1984

About the Item

Artist: Christo Title: Wrapped Floors Medium: Offset lithograph Size: 50 x 36 inches Year: 1984 Publisher: Architekturmuseum, Basel, Switzerland Reference #: Schellmann 110 Hand signed by the artist In excellent condition Gallery COA is included. Known as the power artists duo, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, created ephemeral environmental installations in urban and rural global locations. Christo and Jeanne-Claude (respectively, born June 13, 1935, Bulgaria—died May 31, 2020, New York, U.S.; born June 13, 1935, Morocco—died November 18, 2009, New York, U.S.) stand out for their environmental and sometimes controversial temporary outdoor installations, most notably the wrapping of world-famous architectonic icons like the “Wrapped Reichstag, Berlin”, 1995 or the project "The Gates, New York", which consists of over 7'503 steel gates with orange coloured fabric stretched acres 37 km of walkaway in Central Park. "The important thing to understand is that all of our projects have a nomadic quality, things in transition, going away, they will be gone forever. And this quality is an essential part of all our work. They are airy—not heavy like stone, steel, or concrete blocks. They are passing through." —Christo After Jeanne-Claude´s passing in 2009, Christo continued to carry out the couple’s proposed projects: “Big Air Package”, 2013 inflating an immense fabric dome within the cavernous Gasometer Oberhausen in Germany. As well as “The Floating Piers”, 2016 connecting two islands in Lake Iseo in Italy. These monumental works were seen not only by those that would visit the installations but also by passers-by. These works confront observers not only with its aesthetic properties but explore environmental, democratic, and humanist questions and it creating new ways of seeing familiar landscapes.
