"The arts are our salvation--the only thing that allows us to heal and also helps us dream about what will make the world a better place. I have a responsibility to the world to do something with my abilities as an artist. We are in a very critical place and time right now, and I believe the arts can and must help with it. I have to be a responsible artist and to share my experience with others. This is what my work is about."
Nick Cave, excerpted from Meet Me at the Center of the Earth.

Nick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the EarthNick Cave: Meet Me at the Center of the Earth

Published by Yerba Buena Center for the Arts/D.A.P..
Text by Dan Cameron, Kate Eilertsen, Pamela McClusky.

Critic Roberta Smith has written about Chicago-based artist Nick Cave, “Whether Nick Cave's efforts qualify as fashion, body art or sculpture, and almost regardless of what you ultimately think of them, they fall squarely under the heading of Must Be Seen to Be Believed...” Meet Me at the Center of the Earth features sculptures that Cave calls Soundsuits, to evoke the sense of movement, rattles and rustles inherent in the design of the pieces—which are composed of manufactured and handmade fabrics, such as beads, sequins, bottle caps, old toys, twigs and hair, and seem poised to explode into ritual dance. Exploring issues of ceremony, ritual, identity and myth, they embrace various traditions, as well as cultural and historical references, from African fetish objects to Japanese Butoh dance.
