Nick Cave Exhibit

Enter the world of Nick Cave

A world where costume design deviates completely from the human form and takes one of unearthly stature, and is somehow still wearable. Well, wearable being used quite loosely. Nick Cave, a dancer, sculpture and performance artist from Missouri challenges your idea of costume design with the beautiful monsters he brings to life. All of Cave's pieces show off his masterful embroidery skills, awareness of fabric and form, a staunch dedication to his work as well as his wit and sense of humor. When faced with his creations, you truly notice the meticulous crafting and complexity behind each figure. Walking through the exhibit had me lost in an otherworldly where-the-wild-things-are dream sequence.
Here are some photos I took at the exhibit:
