Since I came directly from work, I wore a cream jersey with an embellished pearl collar that I love; and pearl earrings are my favourite everyday accessory. I tucked this into my 'go to' work pants- it has a very wide leg and made from a fine linen material- which I got from Ackermans! They are also really long so you that you can't actually see that I am wearing heels.

The exhibition titled Faena, is at the Iziko Gallery in Cape Town. 'Faena' is a Catalan word which refers to the dramatic finale of the traditional Spanish bullfight. Mntambo's work here, alludes to the Paso Doble, a traditional dance where two dancers, male as matador and female as matador's cape, enact the bullfight. She recreates the dance with two females instead, who perform both roles, inverting ones perception of what is normal. The images below show the sculptures she created from cow hide, depicting the female dancers movement and form.
