The northern UK city of Hull was a sea of blue this weekend (9/10 July) as more than 3,200 people braved the North Sea chill in their birthday suits for Spencer Tunicks latest mass nude art installation. The participants, painted in four fetching shades of blue, gathered at dawn across landmark sites such as the Scale Lane swing bridge and Queen’s Gardens. Tunicks Sea of Hull photographs, which draw on Hulls maritime heritage, will be shown next year at Ferens Art Gallery during the UK City of Culture festival. One of our very own TAN team members, head of sales Kath Boon, bared all in the name of art. I want to support the City of Culture initiative, she says, adding: It was a humbling experience; there were people of all shapes and sizes. I was in a lovely shade of blue but after four hours naked in the streets of Hull, I was actually turning blue with cold.
