Prolific dancer/performance artist/sculptor Nick Cave (not to be confused with the musician Nick Cave– creative bunch, those Nick Caves) is one of my absolute favorite artists, and these images make it easy to see why. Nick uses everything but the kitchen sink in his modern folk costumes, and even when his performers are covered in layers of loud patterns and cumbersome fringe, their forms still still manage to cultivate a sense of lightness and dynamic movement. If you are fortunate enough to be based in the Pacific Northwest, the Seattle Art Museum owns a number of Nick’s soundsuits, and they are well worth seeing in person.
