Mary Sibande en tant qu'artiste, souligne à quel point les idéaux privilégiés de beauté et de féminité auxquels aspirent les femmes noires disciplinent leur corps à travers des rituels d'imitation et de reproduction. L’artiste active la forme humaine à travers la photographie et la sculpture. Ces médiums l'aident à explorer la construction de l'identité dans un contexte sud-africain postcolonial.

Mary Sibande’s practice as an artist, underlines how privileged ideals of beauty and femininity aspired to by black women discipline their body through rituals of imitation and reproduction. The artist activates the human form through photography and sculpture. These mediums help her explore the construction of identity in a post-colonial South African context. • • •

“Confronting the very inkling of a disempowered African female, the hybrid Victorian garb a gateway to charted elsewheres” Mary Sibande #installation #sculpture #marysibande #voltaartshow #momogallery #art #southafrica #africa #contemporaryart #artist #artwork #kunst #kunstwerk #gegenwartskunst #heikeartgram
South African artist, @marysibande moulded the character of Sophie from the biography of the matriarch’s in her family. Sophie places her narratives at the centre of these large-scale, three-dimensional adventures. In the installation, 'In the Midst of Chaos, There is Opportunity' (2017), this fictional heroine takes on the constructs of the past but also re-envisions its implications to a contemporary black woman.
.
Join us on 19 April 2018 at 1 pm for MOCAA Speaks where a group of museum staff will unpack some of the autobiographical elements of this work, considering how we may place our own narratives within the mold of contemporary art.

A grade 4 Kid drew my installation at Zeittz Mocca for a school assignment. She removed my red warrior and replaced her with the eminent warrior of our times, Winnie Mandela. This made my day, Infact it made my birthday month. 
I also have to mention that’s she wants to be an artist like #MarySibande.

What a dynamic piece. It reminds me of 💜💜🇵🇷#bombayplena 🇵🇷 💜💜🎶kudos to @marysibande 🇿🇦🇿🇦🇿🇦to display a spiritual piece that feels alive with movement. #purplerainprotest read below about this piece👇🏿👇🏾👇🏿 So interesting. #Repost @marysibande ・・・

‘Colour is important in South Africa – we make it important. Colour places you, colour tells where you are within the geography of South Africa. And when I thought of colour, I realised that I cannot ignore the incident that happened in 1989.’ Mary Sibande (born 1982)

This 2013 work is called ‘A Reversed Retrogress: Scene 1 (The Purple Shall Govern)’. Sibande cast these figures from her body. The one in Victorian dress, called Sophie, refers to her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, who were maids in white South African households. The second figure, in purple, represents Sibande herself.

The Purple Shall Govern relates to the statement ‘the people shall govern’, from the 1955 Freedom Charter and post-apartheid constitution. It also refers to the Purple Rain Protests of 1989, when protesters captured the police water cannon being used to spray them with purple dye and turned it on their assailants. Over the following days the slogan ‘the purple shall govern’ was painted on walls around Cape Town. Although a tension remains, Sibande is saying goodbye to Sophie, her past, and confronting the ‘purple’ present and future.

See this incredible work in our #SouthAfricanArt exhibition, which is now open! (See the link in our bio for tickets)

After seeing Mary Sibande’s work on one of the platforms at @thearmoryshow, I was so excited to encounter her work so soon at the @metbreuer in “Like Life: Sculpture, Color, and the Body.” Sibande combines the grandeur of Victorian gowns with elements of uniforms women by servants. She combines not only historical stations but also historical eras, the pre and postcolonial. Her khaki colored dressed, the white shoes, and the act of jumping are associated with the South African Zion Christian Church. The artist reimagines herself as a domestic maid named Sophie, who, by jumping on the platform demands attention in a space where “women of color are infrequently represented”.

Final week of one woman artist a day for Women’s History Month. Fighting my way to finish an intense month with South African artist Mary Sibande and her excellent installation at the Armory a few weeks ago. I’m just going to be lazy and quote the art description by brilliant Armory Platform curator Jen Mergel “Sibande debuts in New York her avatar, Sophie, in a face off between her past and future. The blue worn by her grandmothers as oppressed domestic workers cedes to the figure in purple—a reference to the 1989 Purple Rain Protests, when Apartheid protesters seized a police water cannon spraying them with purple dye (to indict them visually) and turned it on their assailants. Sibande marks a generational turn of empowerment, yet with tendrils of more demons to quell.”

#repost : If you're in New York, treat yourself to the spectacular work, 'Rubber Sole, A monument of aspiration' (2011), by Mary Sibande at the Met Breuer. 
Exhibition overview: Seven hundred years of sculptural practice - from 14th century Europe to global present - examined anew. Like life: Sculpture, Color and the Body (1300 - Now) explores narratives of sculpture in which artists have sought to replicate the literal, living presence of the human body. On view exclusively at the Met Breuer, this major international loan exhibition of 120 works draws on the Met's rich collection of European sculpture and modern and contemporary art, while also featuring a collection of international and private collections.

This is Sophie, the alter ego of South African artist #MarySibande. She is a domestic worker who finds solitude in her fantasies and dreams. Modeled after Sibande herself, Sophie’s clothing and gestures move her from servant to aristocrat, noting the struggle and conflict that still exists working a post-Apartheid South Africa. .

Mary Sibande is also one of the creative artists that inspired us. Looking at South African history, Sibande's artwork is poking at power relations in post-Apartheid South Africa.

I thought the Armory show was strong this year. It was hard to choose just four works to post #patrickjacobs #marysibande #erinmriley #yayoikusama #armory
Favorite highlights of The Armory Show, one of the New York’s top fairs for 20th- and 21st-century art.

Some highlights from this year's @thearmoryshow including this awesome piece by Mary Sibande. Completely blown away by the South African artists showing this year 🙌

L’héroïne des œuvres de Mary Sibande, artiste née en Afrique du Sud au début des années 80, est une domestique noire. 
Son prénom, " Sophie " est celui communément donné par les bourgeois blancs en Afrique du Sud à ces femmes à leur service. Mary Sibande utilise ce personnage comme une sorte d’alter-ego qu’elle met en scène dans de grandes installations ou des photographies. 
Tour à tour princesse ou guerrière, Sophie est portée par l’imagination de sa créatrice, qui œuvre après œuvre, la fait voyager dans un univers de plus en plus onirique et impénétrable.

À travers ce personnage, Mary Sibande, semble compter la vie des femmes noires de son pays et utilise leurs rêves, leurs revendications et leurs peurs pour nourrir son discours. 
Cette histoire aurait également pu être la sienne si elle était devenue domestique comme son arrière grand-mère, sa grand-mère et sa mère. Mais Mary Sibande a, comme une partie de la jeune génération sud-africaine, profité de la fin de l’apartheid et de la présidence de Nelson Mandela pour reprendre son destin en main et briser les chaînes qui l’unissaient à un avenir tout tracé.

De volonté, de hargne et d’espoir il est donc bien évidemment question mais également de doute quand à la possibilité de s’affranchir totalement de son passé et de renverser le cours de l’Histoire. #marysibande #art #artinstallation #photography #artwork #artphotography #contemporaryart #contemporain #contemporaryartist #contemporaryartphotography #southafrica #apartheid #apartheidmuseum #pretoria #museum #blackpanther #blackisbeautiful #paris #france #lille #menasiaartsagency
