“They Don’t Make Them Like They Used To” ~ Mary Sibande
Mary Sibande is a South African artist based in Johannesburg. Her recent series ‘long live the dead queen’ was featured within the city on the side of buildings and other structures as large, photographic murals. the series, like Sibande’s practice as an artist, ‘attempts to critique stereotypical depictions of women, particularly black women in our society.”
Loving the work itself; also very fond of the set-up—the central small panel and bottom left are stunningly arresting.
