Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Wrapped Coast, Sydney, 1969

Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Wrapped Coast, Sydney, 1969

Christo (born 1935) and Jeanne-Claude (1935-2009) were a European couple who travelled the world creating large-scale, environmental works of art. They came to Australia in late 1969 to create Wrapped Coast, an artwork in which they shrouded the coast of Little Bay, Sydney, in 95,600m of synthetic fabric. One hundred workers and 11 volunteers spent 17,000 hours wrapping two and half kilometres of coastline, including cliffs up to 26 metres high. It took visitors one hour to walk from one end of the artwork to the other.

Local authorities and the Australian public initially resisted plans for the artwork. Though once complete, it attracted general praise and had an important impact on Australian perceptions of contemporary art.
