See Why These Woman Sat Naked On The Roof A House For 4 Hours

Her bold stunt attracted the attention of passers-by, who took to social media to share their amazement

Residents were shocked at the naked sight of a woman on top of a London rooftop for lengthy four hours as a piece of unusual performance art.

Puzzled passers-by couldn't believe their eyes when they spotted the nudist high above London's East End. According to the mirror, the artist, Poppy Jackson, was making the nude demonstration as part of an arty installation. One witness, a 29-year-old Raquel Rodrigues, was one of those taken aback by the strange sight.

She told the Evening Standard : "I don't know how she got away with it, if I was walking around naked I'd be arrested. There are lots of businesses around, people were having a peek and then going back to work."

Laid bare: Poppy Jackson was photographed straddling the gable of Toynbee Studios, in east London

A description of the performance claims it "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".

Poppy has previously asked for donations of menstrual blood during another project.
