(Screenshot Reuters) Nick Cave has created an installation for the New York City’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA). The permanent, two-dimensional, mosaic display is called “Every One” and is the first of a three-piece installation, the others titled “Each One” and “Equal All” which will be completed early next year.
“Every One” covers almost 300 square meters and runs along the corridor under 42nd Street connecting the Times Square and Bryant Park subway stations. When completed, the three installations will cover almost 430 square meters and will extend from the Times Square to Grand Central subway stations.
It’s clearly inspired by Nick Cave’s Soundsuit sculptures showing costumes that completely covers the model’s body. The costumes are made from sisal, dyed human hair, beads, plastic buttons, wire, feathers, and sequins. To date, Cave has created over 500 Soundsuits since the first creation in 1992.
Here’s an impression.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
