Christo and Jeanne-Claude

 These are two artist who work within aesthetics concepts rather than within the meaning behind the art piece. Most of their works intervene with nature and are created in the large-scale. Their art practice is more about the process of creation, the art piece is not completed before it’s demounted. My most favorite art pieces are: The Running Fence and Surrounded Miami Islands.

Surrounded Miami Islands, 1983

These two artists have inspired my work, while realizing that the art piece should be all about the process.

If you search the internet there is not much about the meaning of their works, if there is it’s not what they meant, as these two artists have been doing art for the art’s sake, as well as the aesthetics behind it. All their projects were more about relationships with humans and nature, as for each of their projects they needed to overtake huge amount of obstacles, such as courts, people of those areas etc.
