Sarah Maple's Nazi Sexy Shark Show
29 Oct 2020 — 15 Nov 2020
Sarah Maple is an award winning visual artist known for her bold, brave, mischievous and occasionally controversial artworks that challenge notions of identity, religion and the status quo. Much of Maple's inspiration originates from her mixed religious and cultural upbringing. Maple’s artwork, film and performances have been exhibited internationally at galleries and institutions including Tate Britain, Golden Thread Gallery and Tallin Art Hall. Her recent commissions include The Baltic, New Art Exchange and Sky Arts.
Sarah Maple’s exhibition features new work from artist; ‘ ‘Portraits with Fans’ pokes fun at her male counterparts, commenting on the outrageous sexism in the art world and art history, while ‘Stop All The Clocks’ and ‘Cut-Outs Series’ highlights the pressures on women through the male gaze. The central work is a ground breaking series of short 10 minute films which fuse art with sitcoms and were recently shown on Sky Arts, which is now free and available for all to view. Exploring the experience of being an artist, Maple wrote the semi-autobiographical piece to highlight the set-backs, dramas and joys of being an artist in the modern art world, which she both loves and despairs at.
