Financial Times Shadows Fashion Professor Nick Cave

The September 28 Financial Times article “Sound Visionaryhighlights Fashion professor Nick Cave’s new film series for the upcoming exhibition Fantastic 2012. Julie L Belcove shadowed Cave on set, witnessing the artist as he directed dancers wearing “the highly inventive wearable sculptures he calls Soundsuits.” Cave explains the performance saying, “It’s these individuals caged within these worlds, trying to find a way to break out, and they cannot. At the same time, they’re trying to find a way to exist within these worlds.” Belcove further describes the “unconventional route” that led to Cave’s creative success and his equally unconventional decision to live and work “away from art’s white-hot centres.”
