Sarah Maple Artist Bio:

Sarah Maple was born in 1985. She completed a BA in Fine Art from Kingston University in 2007 and in the same year won the '4 New Sensations' award for emerging artists, run by The Saatchi Gallery. Sarah’s artwork, film and performances have been exhibited internationally at galleries and institutions including A.I.R Gallery (NY), AGO (Canada), the Southbank Centre (London), The New Art Exchange (Nottingham), Golden Thread Gallery (Belfast) and Kunisthoone (Estonia). Her exhibition at Kunstihoone broke the museum's record for visitor numbers in a single day, first weekend and overall duration. Sarah's work has been the subject of documentaries including ARTE and VPRO. She has also been invited to speak at an Amnesty International event, as well as events at Oxford, Birmingham and Warwick universities, and the LSE. Sarah has worked collaboratively on film projects with Nick Knight and the Southbank Centre and her work has also been included in publications by the Whitechapel Gallery, Phaidon and Gestalten. In 2015 she released her first book 'You Could Have Done This', a hardback art book of selected works with contributions from Beverley Knowles (curator and writer), Margaret Harrison (artist), Oreet Ashery (artist) and Anne Swartz (professor Art History). Later in 2015, Sarah was awarded a Sky Academy Arts scholarship from Sky Arts which included £30,000, mentoring and a Sky Arts documentary. With the scholarship she will be creating a new body of work about 'Freedom of Speech' for a solo exhibition in 2016. Maple lives and works in Sussex. "Sarah Maple’s artwork is unfailingly bold and brave, not for the coy or faint of heart. These unflinching, occasionally even controversial, investigations into what it is to be a woman and a Muslim in 21st century Britain are made joyful by her own very personal brand of boisterous, tongue-in-cheek humour. This is not sensationalism for sensationalism’s sake, but rather a heart felt urge by a twenty-seven-year old artist of great sincerity and talent, for the viewer to look again, and this time with a more questioning eye, at traditionally accepted notions of identity, gender, culture and religion." Beverley Knowles, 2012
