  • Description: Nick Cave is an American fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist best known for his figurative sculptural “Soundsuits.” Constructed of found materials and designed to rattle and resonate in concert with the movement of the wearer, these works reference a range of cultural, ritualistic, and ceremonial concepts. Cave discusses his work as Performa, focusing on strategies that mobilize, activate, instigate, and escalate.
