On the occasion of the exhibition, Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Barrels and the Mastaba 1958-2018 at the Serpentine Gallery, Christo has created a new Limited Edition print, each hand-signed by the artist and photographer Wolfgang Volz.
Christo and Jeanne-Claude are celebrated for their ambitious sculptural works that intervene in urban and natural environments around the world and temporarily alter both the physical form and visual appearances of sites. In parallel to the exhibition at the Serpentine Gallery, which traces the sixty-year trajectory of the artists’ working with barrels, Christo presented his first outdoor sculpture in the UK, The London Mastaba.
This Limited Edition photographic print depicts The London Mastaba is situ on the Serpentine Lake. It comprises an iconic photograph by Christo’s long-term collaborator, Wolfgang Volz, with both colour and black and white elements to highlight the striking hues of blue, mauve, red and white of the sculpture. Situated amidst the natural setting of the park and against the urban backdrop of the city, it captures as a lasting document the monumentality and beauty of Christo’s temporary intervention within the London landscape.
