Over 200 naked people get together for socially distanced art installation

SOME 220 people strip naked, apart from their masks, for a socially distanced art installation.

The volunteers stood at least 1m apart and had temperature checks for the UK’s “first major participatory work of art since lockdown”.

US artist Spencer Tunick’s Everyone Together was organised in the early morning at Alexandra Palace in North London.

It was supported by Sky Arts to mark the channel now being available on Freeview and Freesat.

Tunick, who is known for his images of groups of naked people taken all over the world, said that creating the work was "liberating and life-affirming".

The installation, assembled in the early hours, was "about breaking down barriers", he said.

"The reality of masses of people close together – shoulder to shoulder, skin touching skin – may be something of the past for now, but still the desire is there for that natural connectivity, perhaps more so now than ever," the photographer said.
