A woman stripped naked and braved the pretty nippy British autumn weather on rooftop for 4 hours. Why, you ask?
Passers-by could hardly believe their eyes when they spotted the nudist, legs apart, on a rooftoop in London’s East End. Poppy Jackson, the naked lady in question, was making the disrobed demonstration as part of an arty installation.
One witness, 29-year-old Raquel Rodrigues, was one of those taken aback by the strange sight.
She told the Evening Standard : “I don’t know how she got away with it – if I was walking around naked I’d be arrested.”
She continued: “There are lots of businesses around, people were having a peek and then going back to work.”
Completely free of clothing, the woman was shaking and looked in danger of catching a chill – but that hasnt stopped her. She’s planning on repeating the stunt today (Saturday), so if you find yourself in the East End, keep your eye out.
A description of the performance claims it “investigates questions relating to temporality, the body in site, representation and gender through consideration of the use of the body in performance as an activist practice”.
