    About The Work

    Suggestive of both African ceremonial costumes as well as Parisian high fashion, Nick Cave's Soundsuits—named because of the sounds they make when worn—are created from scavenged materials such as beads, old bottle caps, rusty iron sticks, and hair. They combine Cave's interests in fashion, culture, and the intersection of politics. By concealing their wearers' race, gender, and class, Cave's works allow individuals to escape or transcend prescribed identities.
