Mary Sibande: I Came Apart at the SeamsSomerset House puts the focus on contemporary artist Mary Sibande in I Came Apart at the Seams, her first solo exhibition in the UK. One of South Africa's most prominent artists, Sibande uses this exhibition to explore the power of imagination and constructive anger in a post-colonial world, using a series of photographic and sculptural works. The human-scale sculptures are modelled on Sibande herself in the form of an avatar named Sophie, who transgresses from humble beginnings as domestic housemaid into a whole host of empowered characters, transcending racial bias and marginalisation and challenging stereotypes of black women in post-apartheid South Africa.
