VIENNA.-The contemporary artist Spencer Tunick creates a new body & landscape sculpture in the Ernst-Happel-Stadium, Vienna. You have the opportunity to become part of a synthesis of the arts.

Spencer Tunick is recognized world-wide for his elaborately posed still and video images of multiple nude figures in public settings. His temporary site-specific installations have taken place around the globe in cities including Montreal, Melbourne, Lyon, Santiago, New York, Mexico City and Barcelona to name a few. Tunick gathers volunteers to take part which in the past have totaled anywhere from 100 - 18,000 participants. His work combines sculpture, performance and land art that consistently features skillfully posed nudes juxtaposed in urban and natural environments.

This very special ephemeral installation that we are inviting you to be part of is devised to capture and combine the spirit of sports, the grand sweeping waves of stadium architecture and the abstract relation of the human form to modern structures.

We are encouraging people from neighboring countries and cities to come to Vienna and be part of this memorable artwork.

The first 2,008 registered participants will receive a free return train ticket (coach) within Austria from the ÖBB. Arrival is possible as of May 10, 2008, departure until Sunday, May 11, 11.59 pm. The affirmation for your return journey will be certified at the Ernst-Happel-Stadium in the scope of the installation.

In return for your voluntary participation all participants will receive a limited edition photograph of the installation in the Ernst-Happel-Stadium.

Only participants will have access to the stadium. You will only be nude for a short period of time. The installation will happen Rain or Shine (the stadium's seats are covered). Participants under 18 years of age may only take part in the installation with written consent of a parent or guardian.

You will be contacted one week before the installation with more information and arrival time. Kindly check your email junk box if you do not receive an email from us by one week before the installation.
