nick cave soundsuits

"These creatures with their amorphous and undefined bodies are apparitions hovering between a human form and an abstract painting. Soundsuits, named for the sounds made when the sculptures are worn, are as reminiscent of African and religious ceremonial costumes as they are of haute couture. A multitude of references bring to mind not only disparate cultural traditions but they also highlight Cave’s diverse background and artistic training."
