Christo is deeply saddened by the passing of his wife, partner and collaborator and is committed to honor the promise they made to each other many years ago: The art of Christo and Jeanne-Claude will continue.

Christo is dedicated to completing their current works in progress: Over The River, and The Mastaba, Jeanne-Claude would wish.

Christo and Jeanne-Claude met in Paris, France in November, 1958, sharing the same date of birth and have worked together for 51 years creating temporary works of art.


"For some time now, the spot in has been relatively empty aside from mud, waste and strewn garbage. There's an application to build condos on the site. It has remained undisturbed since Monday and I watered it yesterday because there hasn’t been any rain lately… Grass is pretty resilient, so it should survive and take root unless/until somebody removes it. Joe Clement assisted me with the install."

Mark Hogancamp built (builds) a 1/6th scale WWII era town in his back yard in order to recover from a brain-damaging attack. Mark populates the town he dubs "Marwencol" with dolls representing his friends & family as well as several sci-fi/fantasy characters he has developed and creates life-like photographs detailing the town's many relationships and dramas. Playing in the town and photographing the action helps Mark to recover his hand-eye coordination and deal with the psychic wounds of the attack.
