In a very strange project to mark England’s Hull’s City Of Culture next year, around 3,000 people stripped naked and painted themselves in blue.
According to the Hull’s City Council, the project has ben named as Sea of Hull and is the largest of its kind to be ever occurred in the country.
The 3,200 participants, who are gathered from 20 different countries to pose in front of various monuments were photographed by the famous photographer Spencer Tunick .
Thousands Of People Waiting In The Bright Sun Only For This Special Photoshoot:
All the participants who volunteered for this project were painted in four shades of blue and represented the flow of water. The landmarks, where these people posed include the Guildhall and the Scale Lane swing bridge, Queen’s Gardens, etc and photoshoot lasted for four long hours.
One of the main volunteers was the 80yr old Stephane Janssen who has also posed for Tunick on 20 different occasions and is the citizen of Brussels.
People Posing At The Queen’s Gardens:
“It’s just aesthetically fantastic. It’s beautiful, we are little strokes of paint. Everybody is equal – no race nor sex difference – I mean, everybody is the same, naked…and that’s what I love,” Tunic said about the project.
The project was commissioned by the Ferens Art Gallery and will be exhibited in the year 2017’s Hull’s City Of Culture events.
Commissioned by the Ferens Art Gallery, the images will be exhibited during 2017’s UK City of culture events.
