As part of a major exhibition of works by Christo and Jeanne-Claude the ambitious sculptors have created The Mastaba, a massive 20 metre installation floating on the Serpentine Lake. The first large-scale public sculpture in the UK by the ambitious sculptors who wrapped the Reichstag in the summer of 1995, the floating sculpture, which draws on the artists's history of barrel artworks, consists of 7,506 horizontally stacked barrels, specifically fabricated and painted in red, white, blue and mauve. It's hard not to see it if you're walking around the lake or having a swim in the lido or visiting the Princess Diana Memorial Fountain. Head to the Serpentine Gallery to see the workings behind Christo and Jeanne-Claude's outdoor projects, planned over many years.

 

About Serpentine Gallery

Found in the middle of leafy Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park, there are two galleries that go by the name of The Serpentine, the original Serpentine Gallery, established in 1970, and the Serpentine Sackler Gallery, designed by Zaha Hadid Architects, a 5 minute walk away across The Serpentine Bridge, was added in 2013.
