    asylum-art: Soundsuits’ of Artist & Fashion Designer Nick Cave

    "Nick Cave (born 1959 in central Missouri, USA) is an American fabric sculptor, dancer, and performance artist. He is best known for his Soundsuits: wearable fabric sculptures that are bright, whimsical, and other-worldly."
    “Cave’s first Soundsuit was made of twigs. Other typical materials include dyed human hair, sisal, plastic buttons, beads, sequins, and feathers. His work is a crazy mix of media—these bunny suits are made of human hair, and others are montages of vintage finds, beads, buttons and old style needle crafts like crocheting and macrame. The finished pieces bear some resemblance to African ceremonial costumes and masks. His suits are presented for public viewing as static sculptures, but also through live performance, video, and photograph

    The Artwork of Cheri Samba:

    "…critics in kinshasa have never accepted the phrases
    in my paintings, they think of painting in a more western
    manner. yet the truth, in my paintings,
    is almost always expressed in the sentences inserted
    in the paintings.
    often they contradict the scene represented…
    for example, for a person from zaire, nudity is scandalous:
    I paint it, I make it visible, and then,with a phrase,
    I find a way of saying ‘don’t look’.
    I like these paradoxes.’ samba says.

    ‘my painting is concerned with people’s lives.
    I’m not interested in myths or beliefs.
    that’s not my goal.
    I want to change our mentality that keeps us isolated
    from the world. I appeal to people’s consciences.
    artists must make people think.’

    I like all works of art.
    I like all works of art whether I understand them or not .
    not that everybody will make understandable things,
    certain works demand reflection before getting to know
    them, even the author must be there for him to
    explain it to you. so I do not take chances as to say
    - this I don’t like - this I like, I like all works of art,
    all that my colleagues do, interests me.
    it’s art, what we do.
    there is no limit, we are artists.
    it’s art that comes from the name artist.
    I am an artist. ‘

    ‘I have a wife and two kids who are girls -
    they are called mimba samba and quilolo samba.
    mimba is the name of my father and quilolo is the
    name of my grandmother.
    I did not try to find out what samba means.
    I know samba is a dance…
    but it also means to pray, to question.
    I like to watch people while they dance.
    at times I sing, there was a time when I sang,
    I use to make up my own songs, they are in my
    paintings, although it is not evident.” designboom.com

    Powerful, beautiful works.

    I love Cheri Samba
