SARAH MAPLE × “THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS”

SARAH MAPLE, “THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS” 

A Solo Exhibition Curated by Indira Cesarine

OPENING RECEPTION January 22 // 6pm-9pm 

EXHIBITION ON VIEW January 22 – February 3, 2019

THE UNTITLED SPACE 

45 Lispenard Street Unit 1W 

NYC 10013 

The Untitled Space gallery is pleased to present “Thoughts and Prayers” a solo exhibition of works by artist Sarah Maple, curated by gallery director Indira Cesarine, opening January 22, 2019, and on view through February 3, 2019. 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. Hailing from Britain, this will be the first solo exhibition of the artist in the United States. Much of Maple’s inspiration originates from being raised Muslim, with parents of mixed religious and cultural backgrounds. “Thoughts and Prayers” will feature many new works, as well as a selection of some of her most notable past works, exploring a wide variety of media including performance, painting, photography, sculpture, collage, installation, and video. Maple’s pro-feminist artwork provokes a dialogue with her sharp humor and satirical eye. She fearlessly addresses what it means to be a Muslim in the Western world. Her taboo-breaking artwork fights against censorship as she investigates themes of politics, violence, freedom, feminism, and the ironies of pop culture. She often employs self-portraiture as a vehicle for her narrative, or engages guerrilla-style performance as a means to convey her message. 

“Using her own image, and drawing on her experience as a Muslim woman, Sarah tackles society’s many taboos, elevating those previously oppressed, and giving voice to those long since silenced.”   i-D Vice 

“Maple has made a name for herself over the years for pushing the boundaries of femininity, and for publicly discussing the convergence of her dual-Muslim heritage with feminism. Rather than crumble, Maple has an impressive resolve in the face of cyber adversity: she tries to laugh instead of cry… Maple hopes to examine where freedom of speech ends and abuse begins.” – Dazed Digital

“Maple could well be the only artist to take on the Kardashians (with her ‘Keeping Up With The Kapulets’ show), stereotypes around Islam (with her ‘I Love Orgasms’ acrylic), and the taboos around menstruation (with her ‘Menstruate With Pride’ triptych). She has received a flurry of glowing reviews – and even more death threats.” – Good Trouble 

“I think we need to be challenged, we need to hear challenging, radical, provocative things, even if we don’t agree with them, as it’s those things that make us react and make us want to bring about change…” Sarah Maple for TEDx

Sarah Maple graduated with BA in Fine Art from Kingston University London in 2007 and in the same year won The Saatchi Gallery’s “4 New Sensations” award for emerging artists. Maple’s artwork, film, and performances have been exhibited internationally at galleries and institutions including Tate Britain, The Barbican, AIR Gallery, and The New Art Exchange, among many others. Maple’s work has been the subject of documentaries including for ARTE and VPRO. In 2015 she released her first book “You Could Have Done This,” a hardback of selected works. The same year she was awarded a Sky Academy Arts scholarship from Sky Arts, which included funding, mentoring and a Sky Arts documentary. In 2017 she gave a TEDx talk in Birmingham, UK on the importance of free speech, titled “The Freedom To Be Challenged.” 

Her work has been featured in numerous international publications, including Vogue, The Guardian, i-D Magazine, The Sunday Times UK, The Independent, People Magazine, Dazed, and the Huffington Post among many others. In 2018 she was invited to make a limited edition cover for Harper’s Bazaar’s art issue alongside artists including Yayoi Kusama, Barbara Kruger, and Linder Sterling. Her artwork is in collections including Soho House, The Hyman Collection and the Ned. Sarah lives and works in Sussex, England. 

ARTIST STATEMENT

“My work is largely motivated by my upbringing as well as my interest in activism and gender politics. Citing current affairs I create works that provoke the viewer through satirical, tongue-in-cheek commentary. My mother is a Muslim from Kenya, who married my British father in the 1970s. She raised me as a Muslim in the UK and sent my siblings and I to a Catholic school. Much of my work examines the duality of my multicultural upbringing and the conflict of identity among young Muslims living in the western world. I began to explore these themes after reflecting on Muslim identity in Britain post 9/11and7/7 and the impact of the Iraq war. Motivated by the current political climate and being from an immigrant background, these subjects are close to my heart as I question notions of identity, belonging, and “otherness” in my works.  

I see many parallels between the UK and the US, especially with Brexit and the Trump election. The gun debate is something especially intriguing to the British. The threat of terror is continually focused on and yet nothing is done about gun laws. When officials offer up “Thoughts And Prayers,” it appears hollow and insincere. I am interested in how a lack of action directly and/or indirectly inflicts suffering and potential violence on its citizens. 

Also inspired by feminism and gender politics, my work aims to challenge deep-seated ideas about what it means to be a woman. I am interested in the role shame plays in women’s lives – how we take up space in the world, our physical appearance, bodily functions and “blame culture.” I explore the ways we can change the visual narrative for women as a form of empowerment. The medium I choose is determined by the strongest way to deliver my message; hence it is constantly evolving across a wide variety of media. Self-portraiture, for example, offers the possibility of taking ownership of our image. When we photograph ourselves, we have complete control over how we want our selves, our gender, our femininity, and our sexuality to be perceived by others. Humor is also an important element in my work. I often use a “Trojan horse” to get my message across and sometimes I just like to point out the obvious as this can be the most direct way to highlight how ridiculous something is. I used to accept a lot at face value but when I discovered feminism it motivated me not only to question the role of women, but also the preconceived ideas relating to all things in society.” – Artist Sarah Maple

GENERATION OF AUTOMATION: IS YOUR JOB IN DANGER?

Humanity has made great strides in the technical world and, as of late, those strides have begun affecting the livelihood of people directly. Technology, (specifically A.I.) has seen vast advancements in recent years, so much so that for some industries the threat of redundancy is becoming ever more real.

According to original research from MoneySuperMarket, driverless vehicles are growing in capability and becoming more popular among firms that traditionally employ large numbers of drivers. Such a transition could trigger large-scale redundancies by as early as 2020. But, which jobs are in danger of being automated first?

Is Your Job At Risk?

To date in the UK, many motoring jobs have already fallen victim to automation – and as many as 1.2 million face a 67% or higher probability of their jobs being automated – representing up to £23.9 billion in annual salaries.

Among professional drivers, only driving instructors have little to fear, with the 29,000 employed in the UK having only a 13% chance of replacement with a machine. However, there are many other driving oriented jobs that could be in danger of being automated such as:
1. Food delivery drivers – The takeaway delivery industry is likely to see replacements across the board, with a 98% chance of automation.
2. Waste disposal workers – Waste collectors face a 93% likelihood of having their roles replaced by a machine. Volvo showcased a prototype bin lorry that uses drones to identify nearby bins, although this wouldn’t completely replace the need for human workers.
3. Taxi drivers – As with bus drivers, there have been moves to automate private transport services. Notably, Addison Lee has stated that the company intends to have automated vehicles deployed in London by 2021. In Tokyo, meanwhile, an autonomous taxi service began operation in August, transporting passengers along a set route.
Even though, driverless technology advances with each passing year, there are some jobs in emergency services, that aren’t at high risk of being fully automated. Services such as, ambulances, police and the fire department are at less risk of being fully replaced due to requiring additional skills.

Tom Flack, Editor-in-Chief at MoneySuperMarket, commented:

“Automation will bring massive changes across the whole of society and those who drive for a living may be among the first to feel its effects. Tests of driverless vehicles are well-advanced and are soon to be on the roads – with future positions in commercial usage already identified.
“If businesses see an opportunity to save money by making drivers redundant, they are likely to grab it – that’s the nature of competition. We can only hope that automation brings with it fresh employment opportunities for those whose existing roles disappear.”

SAM SMITH & NORMANI

SAM SMITH & NORMANI ANNOUNCE ‘DANCING WITH A STRANGER’ OUT JANUARY 11th

Sam Smith & Normani announce their joint single ‘Dancing With A Stranger’ to be released worldwide via Capitol Records on Friday, January 11th. Presave link to download/stream the single here.

‘Dancing With a Stranger’ is a smooth slice of sultry, R&B influenced pop where Sam and Normani’s vocals effortlessly glide over the production. The collaboration between the two came about through a chance encounter at the studio in Los Angeles as Sam was writing the single with pop legends Stargate and Jimmy Napes. Normani was in the studio next door and with both artists being long-term fans of each other, it was a no-brainer for Normani to join Sam on the new track.

Sam Smith has spent the past year travelling around the world on tour in support of his sophomore album, The Thrill Of It All, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and also topped the charts in the U.K, Ireland, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, the Netherlands and Belgium. Rolling Stone awarded The Thrill Of It All four stars and hailed Smith as Éc;one of the mightiest, most expressive singers of his generation.Éd; Éc;Dancing With a StrangerÉd; is the first new music from Sam Smith in 2019 and follows on from his global hit with Calvin Harris Éc;PromisesÉd; which stormed the charts last summer.&#a0;Since the release of his 2014 debut album, In The Lonely Hour, Smith has sold over 17 million album equivalent units worldwide.&#a0;He has won four GRAMMY awards, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, three Billboard Music Awards and three BRIT Awards, among others.

On the new single Sam Smith says, Éc;Iߣm so excited for everyone to hear Éc;Dancing With a Stranger,Éd; which I wrote on The Thrill Of It All tour last year. For me it bottles everything I was feeling whilst juggling my personal life and touring.&#a0;It is also such a beautiful moment for me as Iߣm a huge, huge fan of Normani and everything she is. Iߣm so excited to watch her light shine. I hope everyone enjoys hearing this song as much as I do.Éd;

Normani launched her solo career last year with her debut solo single Love Lies; with Khalid. Love Lies soared to #1 at Top 40 Radio in the US and was the first single Normani released following her global success with multi-platinum group Fifth Harmony. Since then, she has gone on to release a number of new tracks including two tracks with Calvin Harris and her recent single, Éc;WavesÉd; feat. 6LACK. In addition to working with Calvin Harris, Khalid, and 6LACK, Normani has also recently collaborated with Quavo and Kehlani. Normani is currently working on her debut solo album and this March will see her join Ariana Grande on the North American leg of The Sweetener World tour.

Normani explains about the collaboration, I’m truly blessed having the opportunity to create with one of the greatest vocalists of this decade. I think about the artists that I frequently listen to daily and Sam Smith has definitely been one of them for some time now. I never thought in a trillion years that I would be able to state that I have a record with this extremely gifted being. Iߣm super proud to share this song with Sam and cannot wait for the rest of the world to experience it – from the first moment that I heard the song I knew how special it was. Iߣm deeply in love with this body of work and I hope that you all will be too. Iߣm so thankful that Sam put his trust in me to help him bring this song to life. To my fans, thank you for all of your continued support. I love y’all!!! I pray you guys enjoy this.

I-PACE

Jaguar I-Pace: One for the History Books

By Jake Porter × Vaughn Lowery

Possibly no one expected Jaguar to start producing and manufacturing electric vehicles. However, with the rapid onset of consumers searching for an influx of electric powered automobiles, it is not surprising the illustrious British brand provided its very first, all-electric vehicle. Moreover, to the world’s surprise, the antecessor to the Tesla’s Model X, did not emerge from one of the top European mega brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Audi. Instead the Whitley, Coventry based Jaguar Land Rover, which has been manufacturing gasoline vehicles for over 80 years, has now effortlessly executed a lavish battery-only SUV.

The brand new Jaguar I-Pace is like no other. Once only rivaled by the Tesla Model X, this fully electric SUV is one of the first of its kind due to its groundbreaking features. First of all, compared to the majority of other electric vehicles on the market today, the I-Pace is powered by a 90 kilowatt hour battery that delivers an exceptional 240 mile range, which could outrun over 90% of the fully electric vehicles on the road today. The one-of-a-kind battery has a superb charge time. A typical kW DC charger can power the vehicle 0%-80% in 85 minutes.

Secondly, the I-Pace’s near silent acceleration and smooth braking are just a couple of the safety features included in the vehicle. The general handling of the vehicle and cornering ability only adds to the value of the car by creating a smooth, highly controlled turn on any surface. In addition, the stiff steering makes the car feel heavy and capable. The wider 22” tires along with all-wheel drive allows the SUV to claw windy roads with ease. The two different breaking modes included in the Default Regenerative Breaking system regenerate energy by efficiently converting available kinetic energy to electricity to charge the battery and extend the range. By selecting the “High” regenerative mode as opposed to the “Low” regenerative mode, it enables an intuitive single pedal driving in many conditions. Hood scoop, flush retractable door handles and back spoiler enhance air flow with a .29 drag coefficient. This feature tops many sports sedans and cars in their stable.

The I-PACE also includes a 3-mode system which alters the driving experience. Specifically, the modes of the vehicle including “Dynamic Mode,” “Comfort Mode” and “Eco Mode” – each of which accurately controls the vehicle in a different way. Dynamic Mode sharpens the throttle and steering responses, while firming up the suspension system for more precise handling. While the Comfort Mode can be used for less-spirited or day-to-day driving, the Eco mode reduces battery load by adjusting the climate of the battery cells with safely heating or cooling while eliminating any other non-essential systems. Each mode, changes the color of the ambient lighting inside the vehicle. These modes are yet another wonderful feature that adds to the pleasant user experience.

Furthermore, the vehicle’s exhilarating driving dynamics with its 394 horsepower and 512 lb-ft torque, produced by its twin electric motors (one at each axle), and its AWD, provide an experience that many drivers will enjoy.

The car is packed with ample road presence and turns heads wherever you go. Its bold, muscular, yet sensual lines make it aesthetically pleasing. This is a true driver’s car.

The Interior

Inside the cabin, the I-Pace comes loaded with an abundance of technology and safety features. Top notch infotainment system alongside of impressive appointments will impress most who step inside. The tempered glass and massive panoramic sunroof create an even more roomier and cozy environment for stargazing. The 825 watt Meridian sound system provides a concert-like experience. Of course, the vehicle also includes interior control panels and digital dials that are all extremely simple and easy to operate.

Comfort and Storage

Beyond it’s impressive all-electric range, its spacious and elegant cabin provide comfort for up to 5 people with ergonomic seating with ample storage in the trunk and, as an added feature, the I-Pace also sports space under the hood as well (aka a frunk). All in all, the total storage rivals that of today’s minivans. This attribute makes the I-Pace great for small families.

Conclusion

The Jaguar I-Pace is one for the history books. The vehicle is extremely difficult to find fault with. It truly has the appearance and spirit of a Jaguar. The comfort and the technology inside the car, as well as its sleek design, create a versatile vehicle perfect for an urban excursion or a local road trip. At $93,000 fully loaded, it’s a force to be reckoned with. This extremely driver intuitive elegantly designed SUV is perfect for a modern family and/or a top level executive.

European Cycle Routes for Newbies

Knowing where to go in Europe for a leisurely cycling vacation can be tricky. It helps to have good advice from the experts. Freewheel Holidays, the international specialist in self-guided bicycle vacations in Europe, suggests three routes for those new to multi-day bicycle touring who may prefer routes without steep climbs or descents.

UK-based Freewheel Holidays arranges bicycle vacations along mainly traffic- and challenge-free routes. Because guests cycle across mostly flat terrain, the fatigue and frustration factors of challenging inclines are kept out of the equation.

Following are Freewheel Holidays’ suggested itineraries for newbies in Spain’s Catalonia, along the Danube in Austria and in the Loire Valley of France. As with all of its self-guided vacation programs, rates (per person, double) include lodging with breakfast, detailed route notes, point-to-point luggage transfers, 24-hour emergency support, complimentary bike rentals and suggested attractions along each route. E-bike options are available on all of these itineraries. For additional vacation-by-bicycle suggestions see: http://www.freewheelholidays.co.uk/.

The 7-day Catalonia Greenways itinerary begins with an exploration of a preponderance of extinct volcanoes in Garrotxa Natural Park in the Girona Pyrenees. After wandering the streets of the 13th century market town, Olot, and sampling the local goat cheese, Garrotxa, it’s on to a disused rail line, the traffic-free Carrilet Olot cycle path, downhill through the wood countryside in the mountains, destination the medieval town of Girona. The beach on the Costa Brava awaits, with perhaps a dip in the sea on the northeastern tip of Spain. The per person double rate is from £789 with departures beginning in early January and continuing through end October 2019. See: https://www.freewheelholidays.co.uk/cycling-holidays/all-cycling-holidays/family-cycling-holidays/catalonia-greenways

The 8-day Danube Cycle Path – Passau to Vienna itinerary explores an ancient military and trading route on paths along the Danube River once traversed by Romans, the legendary Nibelungs (think Wagner) and even Europe’s powerful kings and emperors. The adventure begins in the baroque town of Schärding or in Passau, the town of three rivers, before moving on through Upper and Lower Austria and finally to Vienna. The per person double rate is from £549 with departures beginning in early April and continuing through mid October 2019. See: https://www.freewheelholidays.co.uk/cycling-holidays-austria/passau-vienna-danube

A 7-day Loire Valley Castles itinerary guides guests through the Loire Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage region, that is also known as “garden of France.” Here is a display of one-time wealth and imminence as reflected in the more than 200 castles. Among these is the Clos-Luce manor in Amboise where Leonardo lived for three years (and died) and where some of his remarkable inventions are on display. Cycling through this luxuriant countryside rife with fields of wheat and barley, poppies and centennial oaks is joy in and of itself, with opportunities aplenty to sample the wines of this renowned food and wine region. Concluding the tour is one of the most famous and majestic of all Loire castles, Château de Chambord, that lends its name to a liqueur and that after 288 years in construction, served as a royal hunting lodge. The per person double rate is from £609 with departures beginning late April and continuing into mid September 2019.

British Parents Spend £642 a Month on Credit Cards

  • TotallyMoney’s Credit Spending Index reveals the nation is spending 46% more on credit cards compared to ten years ago.
  • 56% of parents would rather save for a family holiday than clothing for children and school equipment and trips.
  • 78% of parents worry about their financial situation at least once a month

Getting kids back to school means buying new P.E. kits, geometry sets, and school uniforms, 64% of parents, however, are frequently concerned about being able to afford their bills – so how are parents managing to cope with their cash flow, bills, and outgoings? The last ten years have been filled with financial uncertainty, from the market crash to the housing bubble, these have affected all forms of spending habits such as the price of petrol to the price of school lunches.

Families are becoming more frugal when it comes to watching their pennies. TotallyMoney’s new research explores spending over the past decade, tracking data on consumer behavior, to reveal how parents have been managing their cash and paying their bills.

 

Younger Families Rely the Most on Credit Card Spending

Although the number of credit cards and accounts in circulation has decreased by 10% over the past decade, the number of purchases made have risen by 25%. Totally Money’s study reveals that the total value of credit card purchases has increased by a worryingly high 46%. When parents were asked if they feel they rely too heavily on their credit cards, 13% agreed. This agreement peaked to just under one out of five parents with young families (those who have children under the age of three).

 

Parents Prioritize Holiday Saving

The survey also revealed that a shocking 78% of parents worry about their financial situation on a monthly basis, with 28% worrying daily. However, despite this, an alarming 56% of parents prioritize saving for their family holiday over clothing for their children, as well as school equipment and school trips.

 

Credit Card Spending

With just over 75% of parents owning a credit card, 36% rely on their credit card to get them through the month – spending an average of £643 per month. The study also unveiled younger families might worry the most but are evidently savvier when it comes to their pennies; spending the least on their credit cards per month (£551). However, whilst parents with children aged between eight and twelve have the highest amount of disposable income, an average of £315 left at the end month, it seems the same group tend to be the most reliant on their credit cards; averagely spending £742 per month.

44% of parents say they find themselves concerned about being able to afford their bills every month. This could be accredited to the increase in the cost of living as well as inflation compared to the national average salary of £27,600 – £1,200 less than the national average weekly household spend of £554.20, equating to a yearly figure of £28,818.

 

Joe Gardiner, Head of Brand and Communications at TotallyMoney, comments, “It’s no secret that the way British people are spending their money has changed over the years. Although outstanding personal loans per household have fallen by 13%, the number of purchases has risen by 25%, which can be accredited to the difference of 4% between how much people are spending yearly and the average national wage.”

“Brits are having to carefully consider what they deem to be important in order to make their income stretch even further. When asked what measures people put in place to assure they rely on your credit cards and/or overdrafts, it was really encouraging to hear the majority of people surveyed replied that they’re actively taking control of their finances by keeping an eye on unnecessary spending and budgeting in advance. ”
