Christo Saint Tropez
Saint Tropez welcomed a new high-end art address to its main square this summer with the launch of the Fondation Linda & Guy Pieters in the Place des Lices. The inaugural exhibition is in homage to the work of celebrated artist Christo and his magnificent Mastaba project.
In June, Christo unveiled the London Mastaba in Hyde Park. The temporary sculpture consists of 7,506 horizontally stacked barrels on a floating platform in the Serpentine Lake, and is the first major outdoor work of his to be displayed on British soil. The Mastaba concept is an enduring one for the Bulgaria-born artist; its origins can be traced back in his work to 1958.
