Wrapped Trees

Fondation Beyeler and Berower Park, Riehen, Basel, Switzerland, 1997-1998

In Autumn 1998, after the trees around Fondation Beyeler and in the Berower Park had shed their leaves, Christo and Jeanne-Claude wrapped 162 trees—some up to 25 meters high—with 55,000 square meters of polyester fabric and 23 kilometers of rope. The effect of light and weather on the translucent material created a kind of amorphous sculptural choreography, an ever-changing variety of shapes, surfaces, and colors. The fabric, used every winter in Japan to protect trees from frost and heavy snow, lent the trees the appearance of precious and fragile objects.

The Fondation Beyeler project was a pièce de résistance for Christo and Jeanne-Claude, and an extension and expansion of many years of interest in the concept of wrapped trees. By 1998, the artist pair renowned for their environmental interventionshad worked on trees for over three decades. In 1966, they wrapped a 10-meter-high tree in a personal exhibition in the Stedelijk van Abbe Museum in Eindhoven. In the same year they worked on a wrapped trees project for Forest Park in Saint Louis, Missouri, and in 1968 for the Museum of Modern Art In New York. In 1969, Two Wrapped Trees were exhibited in Sydney.

Packed full of exclusive images and documentation, this volume traces the expansive history of Wrapped Trees as well as the project’s realization story, from start to finish. It includes preparatory drawings, collages, and plans from Christo and Jeanne-Claude’s archive, as well as numerous photographs of the final Wrapped Trees.

The art of presenting art

Vladislav,29 ottobre 2021
An influential work of Christo and Jeanne-Claude, presented with the quality typical of TASCHEN.

Christo and Jeanne-Claude IT IS!

Tomislav,27 ottobre 2021
In the year when our eyes are focused on Christo's last project: Wrapped L'Arc de Triomphe, the book Wrapped Trees presents just one in a series of brilliant ideas of this couple who have committed themselves to the world and provided what is most important to us: the idea of beauty and togetherness, the idea of peace and love, the idea of simplicity and artistic sublimity. We see all this by observing the works of Christo and Jeanne-Claude who marked (art) history - forever, and lived among us.

Edición muy cuidada de obra emblemática

Juanma,17 dicembre 2021
Edición muy bien cuidada, con el extra añadido de una muestra de la tela usada para envolver los árboles, más una fotografía firmada, que es una obra de colección en sí misma y una excelente pieza para decorar cualquier estancia. De plena actualidad tras la obra póstuma con la envoltura del Arco del Triunfo de Paris.
