Suits You Sir! Mr Cave's Soundsuits.

Nick Cave is the creator of full body “soundsuits” which are made from layers of metal, plastic, fabric, hair, found objects, and other things that rub together to make noise. Many of Cave’s soundsuits are politically/socially inspired and have deeper meanings than just looking fantastic and making rustle sounds.  His work belongs to the group that includes the garmented figures of Forcefield and Justin Samson; Yinka Shonibare's Euro-African rococo concoctions; Leigh Bowery's body-altering costumes; the bead-o-rama environments of Lisa Lou; and the everyday wardrobe of Iris Barrel Apfel
