Stripping Away Hypocrisy
Associated Press reported that more than 1,500 Venezuelans shed their clothes on a main city avenue Sunday (March 19) to pose for American photographer Spencer Tunick, forming a human mosaic in front of a national symbol: a statue of independence hero Simon Bolivar.
"The body represents beauty, love and peace. There was a lot of beauty and energy in the people today." Tunick said.

Tunick, an artist from Brooklyn, N.Y., has been documenting groups of nude people in public places around the world since 1992.

It's a wonderful thing for a city and a country to give some honor to the body as an art object," Tunick said. "For me, it's all about the body as a substance, as an organic substance."

For us, it's a liberating art installation, because it liberates you from the "cage" of misconception about body, nudity or sensuality.
