Visitors to an exhibition displaying hyper-realistic portrayals of the human body can experience the event in a unique way later this month when the organisers invite people to view the works naked.

Tempora, the company behind the Hyper-Realism sculpture exhibition “Ceci n’est pas un corps" - "This is not a body" which is currently showing at Tour et Taxis in Brussels, have announced that on the evening of 30 August from 18.30-21.00, a nude tour of the exhibits will take place.

The idea is to put the models on display and the visiting public on an equal footing. The exhibition contains 40 different representations of the human body, some clothed, some not.

This is not the first time that the organisers have had the idea of reserving an evening visit just for naturists. A naked viewing was also organised when the same exhibition was held at the Musée de la Boverie in Liège 18 months ago.

According to Tempora, the experiment – which had been organised in partnership with local naturist groups - had been a success, hence the desire to reproduce it in Brussels.

Entrance to the exhibition costs €14.50.
