Christo presented The London Mastaba, Serpentine Lake, Hyde Park 2016 - 2018, a temporary floating sculpture on The Serpentine Lake
The London Mastaba consisted of 7,506 horizontally stacked barrels on a floating platform, 20m in height, 30m wide x 40m long. Standard 55 gallon barrels were fabricated and painted for the sculpture. NextShoot filmed the construction of the piece and documented Christo's show at the adjacent Serpentine Gallery.
We conducted a number of interviews with Christo, his team, Chairman of the Serpentine Galleries, Michael Bloomberg, Artistic Director, Hans Ulrich Obrist, and CEO Yana Peel, in addition to filming timelapse and aerial footage of the sculpture and its surroundings.
