Christo & Jeanne-Claude: The Mastaba / Over the River

Text by Jonathan Henery. Photographs by Wolfgang Volz.

"Fabric panels suspended horizontally clear of and high above the water level will follow the configuration and width of the changing course of the river during a period of two consecutive weeks to be selected between mid-July and mid-August of any given year in the future, in 2012 at the earliest."<p>Jonathan Henry describes Christo and Jeanne-Claude's Mastaba River project in <a href="9788434311930.html">Christo & Jeanne-Claude: The Mastaba / Over the River</a>, from which this preparatory image is repdoduced.This book compiles documentation for two unrealized projects by the legendary duo of Christo (born 1935) and Jeanne-Claude (1935-2009): "The Mastaba," a project conceived in 1977 for the United Arabic Emirates, and "Over the River," a project recently conceived for the Arkansas River. "Mastaba," Arabic for "bench," is proposed as a sculpture of approximately 410,000 horizontally stacked and variously colored oil barrels. Trees and shrubbery would be planted around the Mastaba as a windbreak against the sand and windstorms; the area adjacent to the walkways approaching the Mastaba would resemble an oasis with flowers and grass. "Over the River" consists of a succession of fabric panels to be suspended above the Arkansas River, for a period of two weeks sometime between mid-July and mid-August of any given year in the future (2013 at the earliest). Both projects are fully illustrated with preparatory drawings and photographs of the proposed locations.

"Fabric panels suspended horizontally clear of and high above the water level will follow the configuration and width of the changing course of the river during a period of two consecutive weeks to be selected between mid-July and mid-August of any given year in the future, in 2012 at the earliest."

Jonathan Henry describes Christo and Jeanne-Claude's Mastaba River project in Christo & Jeanne-Claude: The Mastaba / Over the River, from which this preparatory image is repdoduced.
