Christo & Jeanne-Claude

The artist Christo is about to hit the headlines once again with a major installation on Lake Iseo in northern Italy. His previous works include “Wrapped Reichstag” in 1995 and 1983’s pink “Surrounded Islands” in Miami’s Biscayne Bay. His new project, the first since his Central Park “Gates” in New York a decade ago, is “The Floating Piers”, a series of walkways stretching 3km over Lake Iseo, made of floating polythene cubes and clad in 70,000 sq meters of shimmering yellow fabric. Open for just 16 days, from June 18, the piers will connect two islands on the lake, and the fabric will extend into the streets of lakeside towns. Wilson Stephens & Jones have a collection of framed lithographs all signed by Christo (and some by his late wife Jeanne-Claude as well) that we will be showing during June and July. These, together with some “Art Cards” in perspex boxes, come from a collection in the United States formed by someone who has worked alongside him for the past 30 year.
