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’. In the series black woman are depicted wearing extravagant Victorian dresses in vivid hues.
