"With ordinary fabric and cord, Christo has wrapped an imposing bundle of work and secured for himself a prominent position in mid-century art. He has packaged everything from tin cans to entire buildings. In his mile-long stretch of wrapped seacoast in Australia, he has provided one of the eeriest visual spectacles of our time. It has been an extraordinary and fascinating career - especially for a Bulgarian refugee who, within the space of a few years, has become an international art celebrity." (David Bourdon).
