Completely Naked is a visual arts initiative. London based founders, Claire Ward-Thornton and Pau Ros created Completely Naked in November 1999. Currently Completely Naked comprises a team of free-lance collaborators, like Pablo Goikoetxea.
We explore representations of the human body and challenge social boundaries around personal identity. Our work combines an interest in culture, psychology and communication with design by engaging public audiences in exciting methods of interactivity and art.
Our projects often raise challenging questions and inspire extraordinary responses from a diverse community of artists and non artists alike. Our work aims to be inclusive and connects us with a network of visual happy people!
We like to think that our projects are constantly evolving... Through pubic interaction, our live projects define the attitudes of society today.
By maintaining a strong human aspect to the ideas, we create interactive environments which invite the audience to freely express their personal interpretation of a simple but provocative concept.
We apply predominantly time based media, photography and video to actual and virtual spaces. The internet has provided an exciting, exploratory space for us to curate online galleries of submitted work.
Our work has toured to cultural festivals and venues in Europe including Escrita Na paisegem (Evora, Portugal), Teatre Lliure (Barcelona), CCCB in Barcelona, 'Desviaciones' in Madrid, Motel Mozaique in Rotterdam and the National Review of Live Art in Glasgow. Commissioners include Shooting Live Artists, LIFT Festival, New Work Network, the Geothe Institute and the British Council.
