soundsuits

i first heard about the artist nick cave when i saw a post about him on our brooklyn we the free store’s blog. then a reader on our blog suggested checking him out and i couldn’t put off posting about him anymore. cave is a chicago based artist who is also a trained dancer and former clothing designer…all of which is evident in the creations he makes, called “soundsuits”, because of the noise they make when moved around in. he uses a variety of found materials to create the soundsuits, which can stand on their own as artwork or be worn by dancers as performance art. here are some of them…they’re pretty wild…

i wasn’t able to find a website for nick cave, but you can find more info about him on the website for the jack shainman gallery in new York, where he has recently shown his work.

Nick Cave’s art absolutley astounds me. I appreciate art a great deal having grown up around it, but this is out of the ordinary. His scultures are modern day pop art! Here comes an iconic generation exemplifying their spontaneity. I love it!!!
