Catalogue Note

Please Note: The artist has requested the purchaser's name be remitted to him.  Christo’s Wrapped Objects explore the transformative effect fabric and tactile surfaces have when wrapped around familiar objects. The concealment caused by the fabric challenges the viewer to reappraise the objects beneath and the space in which it exists. For those Wrapped Objects that are packaged in translucent polyethylene, little is left to the imagination, but the material gives the everyday objects an additional sculptural quality.
