Naked Rambler to make guest appearance in Spencer Tunick “Sea of Hull” installation
1 April 2016
Naked Rambler Stephen Gough invited to appear at Spencer Tunick installation
The internationally renowned New York based artist Spencer Tunick will gather hundreds of naked people to take part in a series of photographic installations in the city of Hull on 9 July 2016. In response to Hull’s maritime history Tunick’s participants will wear body paint to reference the colours of the sea
A news reporter was caught out by our front page prank when we issued a hoax press release on April Fools Day stating that the Naked Rambler Stephen Gough had been invited to lead the Spencer Tunick Sea of Hull nude installation.
Scottish Sun journalist Paolo Fril was quick to send in a press enquiry asking: ‘I noticed the story on the website about Steve Gough turning up at artist Spencer Tunick's naked photo shoot in July, but that he will be the only one wearing clothes because of his ASBO. Is that true? Would he then be doing the two month trek to Hull fully clothed? Would be a bit different for him I imagine.’
We assured Paolo that the Headline splash (opposite) was our attempt at an April Fools Day joke and not to be taken seriously. A relieved Paolo replied: ‘Ha! I thought it might be an April Fool. I'd have looked very stupid if I just lifted it from the website and published it in the Scottish Sun. Thanks again. I will drop Steve an email to see what he is really up to.’ As a goodwill gesture, Paolo has been awarded one of our limited edition Naked Rambler coins.

found in the Ferens Art Gallery’s paintings. Sea of Hull will be presented at the gallery in 2017, during the UK City of Culture year. In a surprise move, the Naked Rambler Stephen Gough has been invited to make a guest appearance and will be asked to lead the nude event. Ironically, as Mr Gough is still subject to an Anti Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) forbidding him to appear naked anywhere in public in England and Wales, the Naked Rambler will in fact be the only person turning up fully clothed on the day. Mr Gough plans to set off on foot for the two month
journey to Hull as soon as the weather improves and says: ‘It’s about freedom and the prejudice and intolerance. It’s pushing that back. As we do that within ourselves we become freer and if society does it, society becomes freer. To think that we had discrimination against black people in America and homosexuality etc, etc, etc. If we live in a tolerant country, tolerant society, then it’s something we want to shine a light on and get rid off.” Details of the Spencer Tunick event were published on the Hull 2017 website.
To take part in this unique art event and temporarily transform the city streets of Hull, please check the website link HERE. Each participant will receive a limited edition print of the installation as a permanent record of involvement. Participants will only be naked for a short period of time. Tunick’s work challenges preconceived notions of nudity and the culturally charged, often negative, connotations associated with it. He has created over 90 art installations over 20 years in some of the world’s most culturally significant landmarks. A poor silly fad? Or Is nudity a form of free speech?
