Experience the pulsating elegance of Nick Cave's soundsuits in Drive By, the artist's choreographed film installation. Accompanied by an in-studio sound system and plenty of room to dance. The life-size soundsuits on view, commissioned by PEM, embody a category-bending mix of sculpture, costume, distinctive noise and performance. Created from everyday materials and objects - buttons, sequins, twigs, tin toys, bags and hats - these life-size figures are faceless and otherworldly moving beyond identity, gender and class.
