Nick Cave || The Let Go

Nick Cave’s wearable mops soundsuits invaded the entire ground floor of the Park Avenue Armory. When they started dancing, they were mesmerizing.

Nick Cave’s Soundsuits are wearable sculptures that combine performance and textile art. They are named for the noise Cave’s first suit made, when he wore it and started dancing around. They are often made from found objects and cover the wearer completely, so as to mask their identity.  The inspiration for the first Soundsuit, created in 1992, was the brutal beating of Rodney King. Since then, Cave has created over 500 Soundsuits.
