In this new project, Completely Naked artists Pau Ros and Pablo Goikoetxea and production & producer Tim Owen Jones 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.
"A happening is a performance, event or situation meant to be considered as an art. Happenings take place anywhere (from basements to studio lofts and even street alley ways), are often multi-disciplinary, with a nonlinear narrative and the active participation of the audience. Key elements of happenings are planned, but artists sometimes retain room for improvisation. This new media art aspect to happenings eliminates the boundary between the artwork and its viewer. Henceforth, the interactions between the audience and the artwork makes the audience, in a sense, part of the art." Wiki
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!
