A new and updated edition of 'Christo and Jeanne-Claude: Prints and Objects' Catalogue Raisonné

Maybe you love Christo and Jeanne-Claude, maybe you haven’t thought about them in a while. Either way, this vibrant, well photo-edited catalogue raisonnné of their prints, collages and objects is a superb reminder of what makes their work and their story so amazing. Pictured here is “Little Bay,” 1969, a photograph by Harry Shu of Christo directing work at “Wrapped Coast, One Million Square Feet, Little Bay, Sydney, Australia,” in 1968–69. “Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s projects could hardly be overlooked in their dimensions, and yet they were intangible,” Matthias Koddenberg writes. “They had no material value, belonged to no one, existed only for a brief moment. The drawings, collages, and above all the photographs that bear witness to the existence of the works of art are all the more important for those who have not themselves experienced the projects of Christo and Jeanne-Claude. They testify to a feeling of wonder, of marveling at what often seems commonplace and self-evident. With their interventions, Christo and Jeanne-Claude challenged our ideas of what is intimate and familiar. By giving a new visibility and palpable presence to objects, spaces, structures and entire landscapes that we tend to overlook because they seem well-known and commonplace to us, they refocused our minds on them. The subject of Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s art is quite literally the world itself.”
