On 14th September, Tunick will also hold a repeat performance of his 2011 nude piece Dead Sea. The installation features 1 200 people from Isreal who swam naked in the sea on the borders of Israel, the West Bank, and Jordan.

In the five years since, the landscape of that very area has changed dramatically, as the water levels drop over a metre each year.

Tunick will re-visit the site with director of the Center for Transboundary Water Management at the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies, Dr. Clive Lipchin.

In a statement, the artist said: ''Since 1991, I have travelled the world making immersive art with people of all races, religions, and nationalities,'' Tunick said in a statement.

''But Israel is a unique place that I hold close to my heart and is the only country in the Middle East where I can be allowed to have proper freedom of expression.''

On 9th July of this year, Tunick chose the Yorkshire city of Hull, which has also been selected as 2017's UK City of Culture, to create his Sea Of Hull piece.

Participants can apply on Tunick's website here.
