Why Hundreds strip naked for Spencer Tunick ....Awesome Installation Art

I love art, it has very subjective boundary one may find various parts of art as vulgar or revealing. In the past we have seen nude sculptures, all across Rome or Europe and few of Renaissance master pieces also reveal human body. It is form of express which depicts the freedom and nature. Even ancient Hindu temples depict tantric and Kamasutra related statutes.

To me I have one word to define Spencer Work, Superbly Natural and Abstract…..

I am one of the die hard fans of installation artist…..Spencer Tunick, the way he captures the group of naked human bodies on street or at public places….is simply abstract.

He is best known for his installations that feature large numbers of nude people posed in artistic formations. In these images the nude form becomes abstract due to the sheer number so closely placed together. Known as installations, they are often situated in urban locations throughout the world.

One thing I like about Spencer, while capturing the abstract nude subjects he always has three requests: no sunglasses, no smiling, and no underwear.The latest work by New York photographer Spencer Tunick gathered 1,840 people, baring it all in Austria’s Happel Stadium on Sunday. It was “Stay very still. Don’t move,” kind of work and crowd followed. Much of the hours-long photo shoot had little to do with soccer, with naked volunteers assuming different poses at the behest of the artist.

Whole artistic experience is simply amazing .

It reminds me the exotic installation art ....way back......presented by NCA artisit Mr Jamil Baloch at Gaddani. He depicted the hunger and poverty of locals in the midst of mega development.....in Balochistan.
