The seven Water Projects - Christo and Jeanne-Claude's installations sharing a connection with water - are considered in further depth. In these projects, from Running Fence, Sonoma and Marin Counties, California (1972-1976) to Over the River, project for the Arkansas River, State of Colorado (dal 1992), the artists worked establishing a close connection with natural, suburban and urban landscapes which all share a relation with water, be it an ocean, a sea, a lake or a river.
Among the Water Projects we must mention The Floating Piers, an installation opening June18 to July 3, 2016, which will allow visitors to walk across Lake Iseo and along its shores on a 3-kilometre route. By means of modular floating piers covered in shimmering yellow fabric, the installation will link the town of Sulzano on the lake's shores, to Monte Isola, also reaching the Island of San Paolo.
Every work included in the catalogue will be accompanied by an explanatory text with all the relevant technical and historical information, along with preparatory drawings, collages, scale models, and photographic documentation of the project's phases of ideation, preparation and realization. The catalogue, besides a rich photographic section, includes an introductory text by Germano Celant and a dialogue between the curator and Christo. The volume also comprises the artists' biography and a complete list of projects, bibliography and filmography.
