Description

Part sculptor, part clothing designer, part sound artist, Nick Cave (not of The Bad Seeds) creates full-body "soundsuits," which are both pieces of art and performative costumes that conceal the wearer's age, gender and race. They are made from collected and repurposed objects, including buttons, beaded baskets, doilies and sequined fabric. A collection of his soundsuits will be shown along with three videos by the interdisciplinary artist and a documentary on Cave, titled "Here."
