It was Christo's wish to still realize this project after his death. It will be realized for 16 days from 18th of September to 3rd of October 2021.
Besides wrapping the Arc de Triomphe in Paris, Christo's other work in progress was a huge installation in Abu Dhabi. The planning startet in 1977. Christo's Mastaba was going to be the biggest sculpture of all time. It should be made of 410.000 oil drums of different colours. They produce a mosaic – and this is meant to referer to the Islamic architecture and culture.
Christo's latest project was realised from June 18, 2018 until September 23, 2018: a floating ‘mastaba’ structure in London’s Hyde Park. The mastaba reaches 20 meters in height and is made from 7,506 oil barrels. It was floating on the Serpentine Lake, behind Kensington Palace. The British mastaba had the colors of its country’s flag — blue, red and white — as well as purple.
Christo's project »The Floating Piers, Lake Iseo, Italy 2014-2016« was realized and was presented to the public from June 18th until July 3rd 2016.
The spectacular installation could be visited and even walked-on. We were on-site most of the time and are really fascinated by this very special piece of art. In addition, we organized for collectors and fans of Christo's art a weekend on Lake Iseo – it were great days with a lasting art experience!
Christo worked for this project since 1992. The project was already proved by the government and the preparations were in progress. But in 2017, Christo canceld the project because of the Trump government.
