Conceptual performance art collective, Dear Ribane, popped into ELLE HQ for a chat
In our March ‘Women in Art’ issue, which is currently in stores, we celebrate creative women whose contributions inspire us to look at and thing about humanity differently. Editor-in-chief Emilie Gambade puts it best in her editor’s letter: ‘Art matters, women in art matter. This issue is a vivid celebration of both. It’s an ode to so incredible female artists, badass, daring and fabulous, who every day gather the world’s magic and make it real.’
On of the women celebrated in the issue is Manthe Ribane, a graphic designer, dancer, performer, and one third of the conceptual performance art collective Dear Ribane, alongside her two siblings, Tebogo and Kokona Ribane. Recently, the three were in Cape Town for a collaborative performative presentation with furniture designers, Dokter and Misses. We invited the to pop in at our Cape Town office for a chat about their incredible creative journey, their style, current and future projects, as well as what it’s like working together as siblings. Catch our conversation in the video below.
