Nick Cave is an artist and educator, working between the visual and performing arts through sculpture, installation, video, sound and performance. He says,
“I have found my middle and now am working toward what I am leaving behind.“
Cave is well known for his Soundsuits, sculptural forms based on the scale of his body. Soundsuits camouflage the body, masking and creating a second skin that conceals race, gender, and class, forcing the viewer to look without judgment.
In a 2013 feature in Interview Magazine, Cave said
“I was really thinking of getting us back to this dream state, this place where we imagine and think about now and how we exist and function in the world. With the state of affairs on the world, I think we tend not to take the time out to create that dream space in our heads.”
This drag is at whole new level, kids.
