Nick Cave first came to prominence almost 20 years ago with the display of his now iconic Soundsuits, which are elaborate costumes-as-works-of-art. Made of a myriad of discarded materials, they are designed to be worn and moved in, concealing the wearer's race, gender, and age. Since then he has become known internationally for the Soundsuits, as well as for his ritualistic public performance projects and flamboyant installations consisting of literally thousands of ornamental items.
