Nick Cave: Ski Mask Button

$5.25 $7.00    Member Price: $4.73

Produced on the occasion of the traveling exhibition Nick Cave: Meet Me At The Center Of The Earth, the largest presentation of work by the Chicago-based artist, featuring thirty-five of his Soundsuits—multi-layered, mixed-media sculptures named for the sounds made when the “suits” are worn. Reminiscent of African, Caribbean and other ceremonial ensembles as well as of haute couture, Cave’s work explores issues of transformation, ritual, myth and identity. His virtuosic constructions incorporate yarn, sequins, bottle caps, vintage toys, rusted iron sticks, hair, and more. Mad, humorous, visionary, glamorous and unexpected, the Soundsuits are created from scavenged ordinary materials that Cave re-contextualizes into extraordinary works of art.
