Renowned New York artist is seeking festival goers to take part in the BP oil spill-inspired piece
Renowned American artist Spencer Tunick is set to create a nude art installation at this year’s Big Chill festival – and he is seeking festivalgoers to take part.
Taking place on August 8 at the Herefordshire event, Tunick is looking for people to help him create a piece which is inspired by the recent BP oil spill off the coast of Louisiana.
Urging attendees to “take a leap of faith”, those willing to pose will be covered in black paint and collectively photographed.
Those brave enough to disrobe will receive a limited edition print of the work, plus have access to shower stations, soap and towels to remove the make-up and paint.
This isn’t the first time Tunick has worked in the UK – earlier this year the New York artist captured 1,000 nudes in a Manchester piece which paid tribute to Stretford-born artist LS Lowery.
Festival ticket holders willing to take part can apply by emailing SpencerTunick@bigchill.net.
As previously reported, Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, MIA and Massive Attack are among the acts who will perform at the event, which takes place at Eastnor Castle on August 5-8.
