have wrapped The Pont Neuf in Paris, the Kunsthalle Bern, the Reichstag in Berlin, the city walls of Rome: Christo and his partner Jeanne-Claude. In 2016, Christ has implemented, its partner in 2009, passed away, a project he worked on for years: a way out of substance that leads over the water, accessible to the Public. "Floating Piers" was on the North Italian Lago d'Iseo reality.
The project was accompanied by a film team. It was, as Christ was for him a typical wax crayon plans ready, as he met local politicians and schools attended. As in the case of stormy weather, the three-kilometres long and with over 70, 000 square meters of orange fabric-covered Pier has been installed.
Documented a art-project: "Walking on Water" by Andrey Paounov. Video: YouTube/myths movie
And, as all were overwhelmed with the visit up running: Around a Million people wanted to go across the water. The camera of the Bulgarian Director Andrey Paounov was holding all of these turbulent days and weeks, as a kind of silent witness. For information from the Off are missing, as well as direct statements of the protagonists.
The cliché of the artist
Particularly sympathetic to Christ acts in the Film. With his regular outbursts of anger and his Eccentricity, he nourishes the centuries-old myth of genius, but also a little crazy artist. Even with his 83 years, he pursued his Vision with an iron will. And ideas to him.
immediately after the "Floating Piers" began Christo working on his next mega-project: "The Mastaba" in London's Hyde Park, a floating sculpture in the Form of an ancient Egyptian tomb. With the peaceful image of Christ in the North African desert, the Film ends. Those last scenes with a for once peaceful Christ it is loud to the hundred or so previous, chaotic and, unfortunately, somewhat tedious minutes almost glad.
