If you are not familiar with the work of Nick Cave and you live in the Northwest US you might want to make plans to visit the Seattle Art Museum. The show, Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth, runs from March 10 - June 5, features Cave's Soundsuits.
The museum website says about the show,"Nick Cave tailors suits that are sculpture, clothing characters that spring out of his imagination. Stately guardians preside in shaggy, day-glow pink hair, polar bears wear sweaters that stik out in humorous places; and dancers adorned with white beaded filigree crowns. Suits like this have never been seen before. Partly this is due to his choice of improbable materials - buttons, plastic tabs, hot pads, metal flowers, sandwich bags, spinning tops and crochted doilies - which are used to make visually fierce and impeccably detailed suits. Multiple media installations remind us of the desire for these wearable sculptures to move and perform."
I love this man's work and I think you will as well!
