VIDEO: Gay and straight, 5200 strip for Tunick's nude shoot

Sydney, March 1st, 2010 /PN/ Spencer Tunick's latest art-photo installation in Australia drew more than double the expected turnout, with approximately 5,200 volunteers gamely doffing their clothes early Monday morning to pose nude in front of the Sydney Opera House.


Tunick, who is known for his nude group photos in public spaces, posed participants for more than an hour in a variety of positions.

The event was comissioned as part of the city's Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Festival.

"It was difficult to get the straight participants to embrace the gay participants and vice versa," Tunick said. "So I was very happy that that last setup finally got done and everyone came together [in a] united, friendly kiss, a loving kiss in front of this great structure."

"Gay men and women lay naked next to their straight neighbours and this delivered a very strong message to the world that Australians embrace a free and equal society," he added.

Tunick has produced almost 100 installations around the world, and says his work is not about exhibitionism or eroticism but instead reveals the vulnerability of life in a rough city landscape.

    Spencer Tunick successfully passes a message in such a symbolic form where thousands of organizations rarely succeed without being subject to extremely violent reactions.
    I personally think this is a big success for the gay rights/human rights movement.
