Performance Artist Nick Cave is bringing his mesmerizing sound-suits to Grand Central as part of their 100th year celebration. The performance piece (HEARD-NY) will feature thirty of his colorful horse suit creations wandering and dancing in the train station at set times. If you’ve never seen Cave’s sound-suits, as he calls them, then you’re in for a treat. These handcrafted suits made from found objects obscure the performer, creating an anonymity for the performer and viewer, leaving only on the sights and sounds of wonder.
