Nick Cave | Sojourn | Denver Art Museum

Taking visitors on a journey through the artist’s imagination, Nick Cave: Sojourn features approximately 40 new artworks including 24 new Soundsuits. Cave’s multi-sensory, immersive installation will transport visitors to a magical world of color, texture, sound and movement. Famous for his Soundsuits, wearable sculptures for the human body, Cave’s mixed media exhibit Sojourn will be at the Denver Art Museum (DAM) through September 22.


Visitors will see a passageway constructed of thousands of buttons; large-scale, sculptural objects made out of found objects; and new short films. New works from Cave include a sculpture inspired by a baptismal font and an archway constructed of thousands of buttons.


In conjunction with Nick Cave: Sojourn, the DAM invited the artist to transform its Precourt Family Discovery Hall into an immersive, interactive environment called Second Skin. Visitors can decorate felt silhouettes and 3-D mannequins inspired by Cave’s artwork while a video projection in the space brings Cave’s Soundsuit performances to life.


The exhibition includes 10 large-scale, 3-D sculptural objects, more than 20 new Soundsuits and several new short films. Representing abstract ideas, the suits manage to convey a subtle environmental and social statement about the excesses of modern-day society.

INTERVIEW: HEIKE-ANGELA BALTRUWEIT

Interviews | October 12, 2020

I am looking for abstract compositions in my surroundings to capture them photographically. The objects and situations are neither changed, arranged nor manually illuminated, nor are they subsequently edited on the computer, even the detail is identical to the shot. All pictures are 'Pure Photography'. I see my surroundings as a 'natural exhibition space'. I find works of art on the pavement, on building walls, in the water and in factory buildings. These works of art are fixations of the moment and therefore difficult to reproduce. A different angle of view, a changed incidence of light, and the colours, bizarrely changed forms have disappeared. Read more
