In discussing her creative practice, Bibo states:
"My work reflects on personal experience and my deep personal feeling of a connection with nature.
I use the word nature in the broadest sense. This includes the environment, specific natural locations, animals and the human body. In German this is called NATURVERBUNDENHEIT.
My work focuses on a wide range of issues; from environmental concerns such as global pollution to the topic of gender and gender inequality – as different as they might seem, they all stem from my feeling of Naturverbundenheit.
I like to use sculpture, video, photography, and performative elements including singing. These media often overlap – for example, I might use a sculptural piece in a performance and then document this through video.
Quite often my work suggests a narrative. I draw on the human affinity to rituals, often using symbolism from the mythical of different cultures. I am also inspired by organic forms in the natural world.
When creating sculpture, I am very interested in learning the relevant making process. I have a great affinity for clay because of its immediacy and ‘healing’ qualities; I have also worked in bronze and other materials."
