How’s that for a cheeky piece of art?
Volunteers stripped naked, outside of their face masks, at Spencer Tunick’s socially distant art installation at Alexandra Palace.
More than 200 people took part in the rally at the famous London venue in the wee hours of Saturday morning.
American photographer Tunick said the creation of this eye-catching piece was “life-empowering and assertive”; and it was about “breaking down barriers”.
“The reality of masses of people close to each other – shoulder to shoulder, skin touching skin – may be a thing of the past for the moment, but the desire is still there for that natural connectivity, perhaps more now than ever. Said Tunick.
Entitled All Together, the piece – supported by Sky Arts – is considered the UK’s first major collective work of art during the coronavirus pandemic.
“To celebrate Sky Arts being free for everyone, we wanted to create a historic cultural moment that invited participation in a Covid-safe way, and demonstrated to the general public that art is at its most essential when it’s for – and for – everyone, ”Sky Arts director Phil Edgar Jones added.
“While the pandemic has posed challenges for the cultural sector, we have also seen a lot of innovation in the arts, and thousands of people have created their own works of art or reconnected with their artistic abilities.
He added: “The feeling that the arts are meant for a self-selected group of people is fading, and that can only be a good thing.”
Tunick is famous for his mass nude images and has previously produced works in Folkestone, Kent, for George’s House Gallery.
