People who got naked for Spencer Tunick, the wait to see yourself in a photo is finally coming to an end. News today is that from June 8, the photos will be available online.
For Dublin participants, the lovely people at the Dublin Docklands Authority will be posting the limited edition photos out to participants. Those who participated in the Cork installations will be able to pick up their artworks at the Cork Midsummer Festival Box Office based at the Triskel Arts Centre in Cork City.
Each participant will receive one photograph as their personal memento, chosen by the artist, from the day they participated. People who took part at both the South Wall and Treasury Holdings Altro Vetro Building in Dublin will receive two prints, as will the people who took part in the Blarney Castle and White Street Car Park installations at the Cork Midsummer Festival.In addition, they'll also be up on a website. The DDDA and Cork Midsummer Festival have jointly commissioned artist Spencer Tunick to create a website exhibition of the Spencer Tunick Ireland Installations. This is set to be a "visual documentary" of the installations, featuring artworks from each city and video works made by the artist.
Each photograph measures 8 x 10 inches and is printed on the same high quality photographic paper that Spencer Tunick uses for his larger artworks.
Apparently it's the first time Tunick's work will be available exclusively through a website. It will of course allow participants to be proud of being naked on the internet.
Right? Right. Something to tell the parents about...
