Christo (b.1935 – 2020) Both natural and manufactured landmarks served as the canvas for Christo and his wife and artistic collaborator, Jeanne-Claude, who wrapped old structures in fabric to give them new life on a grand scale. In 1985, Christo and Jeanne-Claude completed the Pont Neuf in Paris, the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago in 1988, and the Reichstag building in Berlin in 1995.“Once wrapped, the artifacts would take on a new identity,” Christo’s office said. The two collaborated on over 20 projects, reshaping entire buildings and landscapes while also modifying a visitor’s sense of location and space. After Jeanne-Claude died in 2009, Christo continued his job. While the works took years to complete, they were only on display for a short time. The installations at the Pont Neuf and the Reichstag were only up for two weeks. According to Christo’s website, he has been working on a floating Mastaba—a enormous, pyramid-like building built of stacked barrels—since the 1960s. The London Mastaba was ultimately installed in Hyde Park in London for 3months
