Nick Cave `Ever-After`


‘Ever-After’ is an exhibition at Jack Shainman Gallery New York, where American fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist Nick Cave (not the singer), presents a large selection of his famous ‘Soundsuits’.

The ‘Soundsuits’ are amazing wearable fabric sculptures in the scale of the artist, made from all sorts of different materials like twigs, dyed human hair, sisal, plastic buttons, beads, sequins, and feathers. In the brightest of colors, in strange blobby forms, creating figures that seem to have travelled here from another planet.

‘The sculptural form based on the scale of the artist’s body is at the core of Cave’s practice. It camouflages the body, masking and creating a second skin that conceals race, gender, and class, forcing the viewer to look without judgment. However, Ever-After marks a noticeable shift in his approach. The ‘Soundsuits’ will interact within subtly narrative tableaux. These figurative landscapes connect the viewer to a social consciousness, summoning the echoes and voices which Cave believes have been paralyzed to silence and subjected to unfair altercations in an often hostile society.’

Exhibition runs till the 8th of October.

    Cradles and bassinets are the ideal way for you to provide a bed for your
    tiny baby for the first few months of life.

    Utilizing the little one basket as a provider will require greater construction.
