Land Art: ephemeral but monumental Art with Christo & Jeanne-Claude

“Land Art” is the contemporary artistic movement which consists in using natural materials and building with harmony the landscapes in which artists operate.

The most famous Land Art artists are Christo and Jeanne-Claude, a couple who create amazing, monumental but ephemeral structures: they “wrap geography and history” as they integrally overlay historical buildings all over the world but also landscapes, to “reveal them by hiding them”. And the result is incredible. For example, they packed the Reichstag in Berlin, the Biscayne Bay Islands in Miami or the Pont Neuf in Paris.

Their art is made to impress and bring the freedom feeling. They want people to have a new vision of what they have already seen. And that works!
