The gallery was located in the heart of Kristianstad, off the checker cobbled square with the spires and steeples of Christian IV. In the square, street lamps dangled from hooked metal and pedestrians strolled around cars. The gallery featured the work of Christo. Raymond bought our admission and we cut through the bookstore and into the main exhibit. Images of orange umbrellas, bilious silver wrapped trees, red-padded islands, and the wrapped Reichstag. I stopped transfixed by a payphone strapped with the poly, canvas, rope wrapped payphone; the way the rope knots over reminding me of a crib put to sea.
