Sarah Maple’s Nazi Sexy Shark Show (2020).
Sarah Maple is known for her bold, witty, and occasionally controversial practice. She works in a wide variety of media (including painting, photography, sculpture, collage and video) that challenge the interrelated notions of identity, religion, feminism, freedom of expression and the apparent status quo. Much of Maple’s inspiration originates from her mixed religious and cultural upbringing in the 1980s in Eastbourne. Humour is a key element to her work, which she often employs alongside her guerrilla-style performances, as a vehicle for her narrative. Her recent practice has focused on the complex relationship artists have with the art world.
