Winter is well and truly upon those who live in Britain, but that didn’t stop one woman from getting naked and leaping on to a London rooftop in the name of art.

One onlooker took to Twitter to share her surprise.

 

“Right now at #toynbeehall,” Raquel Rodrigues wrote, uploading two pictures of the woman perched on top of Toynbee Studios, in the centre of the capital. “What’s happening? #nakedwomanonroof”.

The event was later revealed to be a piece of performance art by Poppy Jackson for the SPILL Festival of Performance, a showcase of experimental theatre, live art and performance that kicked off in London this weekend, the Independent reported.

As part of the performance, named ‘Site’, Jackson sat naked on top of Toynbee Studios for four hours on Friday and Saturday.

The artist’s website says she ‘makes actionist work exploring the female body as an autonomous zone’.

“The piece 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,” a press release from Toynbee Studios reads.
