DESCRIPTION

Fashion designer and dancer, Nick Cave, is world renowned for his category-bending Soundsuits. Equal parts sculpture, costume, and performance, Cave's life-size creations take on a larger-than-life dimension. Constructed from a colorful bricolage of materials including twigs, sisal, beads, sequins and feathers, Cave's Soundsuits are faceless and other-worldly, obscuring the wearer's identity, gender and class. For the installation at PEM, three never-before-seen Soundsuits will make their debut along with an immersive filmĀ  projection.
