Two Nick Caves

I saw the African American artist, Nick Cave,  exhibit at Cranbrook academy in the ritzy part of town, outside of Detroit.

He makes sounds suits of gathered objects, festoons, feathers,fabricates and fascinates his viewer with these splendiferous creations.


 One room room is an installation of boxes with found objects, referencing violence, eg a glass gun, and is a visual, silent comment on race relations in the states .



I hope to see his performance piece of young black detroit youth dancing in his suits.

And yes I did think I was going to see the Australian, Nick Cave, there are two!
