Known collectively as “Christo” until 1994, when their works were retroactively credited to both artists, Christo Javacheff and Jeanne-Claude Denat de Guillebon created large-scale environmental works—both indoors and outdoors—that altered familiar landmarks and spaces. Primarily working with silken fabrics, Christo and Jeanne-Claude wrapped the Reichstag in Berlin and the Pont-Neuf Bridge in Paris, as well as other monuments and trees, in vibrant drapes. In 2005 they created a work known as The Gates in New York City’s Central Park, composed of 7,503 vinyl gates installed sequentially in the park and hung with saffron-colored swathes of nylon, which alluded to the tradition of Japanese torii gates placed at the entrances to Shinto shrines. Speaking of the ephemeral nature of their work, Christo once said, “I think it takes much greater courage to create things to be gone than to create things that will remain.”
