About the Book
In this new project, Completely Naked artists Pau Ros and Pablo Goikoetxea bring together a production team and public participants to create themed Tableaux Vivants in the only way Completely Naked knows how! These one-off performances are documented on video and as high quality photographs presented here in online galleries and in a series of collectable booklets.
This is a non profit artistic venture, exploring the aesthetics and psychologies of 'nude group dynamics'. Our actions can happen as site specific events, at festivals, theatres, or in art galleries. We set up the theme and invite the participants and together with our creative team, propose the design, bring the props and costumes and let the ideas run loose...
Flashing Bodies is an inspired action created by the people who take part. This unique collaboration between willing participants and the Completely Naked crew of artists makes free expression an exciting adventure. The outcome is up to you!
London 2009 - Our fourth collaboration with the annual Gay Shame event provided the perfect excuse to create our first Flashing Bodies action. This year, Gay Shame Goes Girly was based on the generic theme of femininity. We adapted our happening for a massive audience of around 4000 people by taking the idea of female monkeys as our departure point.
A simple stage and set created an intimate space for group actions. We asked the participating audience to pose in groups, remove their clothes and wear a selection of quirky props. We gave them instructions and encouraged some open play responses and shot the photos - The results were WILD!
