Nick Cave’s Soundsuit

Nick Cave’s Soundsuit

Nick Cave’s Soundsuits have the appearance of a cyber retake of African tribal dance and ceremonial costumes. The Soundsuit above looks fantastic. You can feel enormous energy and raw noise rushing up from the ground, all just from the costume alone. You can check out more at the Jack Shainman Gallery.

I saw this sometime ago, but I decided to post it because I rather like the combination of man and machine. It seems Kafkaesque and reminds me of metropolis and the art of Europe around the beginning of the 20th Century.

Ai Weiwei has made an installation work that depicts his time in captivity under the Chinese authorities during 2011. There are six fiberglass dioramas within 2.5-ton iron boxes that are on display at a church-turned-art gallery for the Zuecca Project Space, during the 2013 Venice Biennale.

Took a look at some of the galleries outside of Art Basel. Takashi Murakami at the Galerie Perrotin, Jean-Michel Basquiat at Gagosian Gallery, and Jake&Dinos Chapman at the White Cube. I really enjoyed Basquiat’s work, but sadly was not allowed to take photos.
