About Nick Cave’s Soundsuits
Cave’s first Soundsuit (1992) was built in reaction to the beating of Rodney King by Los Angeles police officers and the riots that followed the officers’ acquittal in 1992. Though it was not built as a wearable object, Cave donned his creation. Within it he found sanctuary, a new identity, and was surprised and inspired by the sound the twigs made when he moved. And so he named this sculpture, and those like it that followed, Soundsuits.
