“Femme Protects A Life, No to Hijacking, No to GBV”

There are many residents who have been affected by Gender-based Violence (GBV) in their local London boroughs. There has been an increase in assaults; sexual and racial, violence, psychological abuse and human trafficking. We are campaigning to stop violence towards women and men around London with our Femme Campaign to stop the ‘targeting’ of Gender-Based Violence caused by political unrest as well as militia groups. These militia groups are extremist socialist and Supremacist groups in the UK who are harassing and abusing vulnerable people psychologically for financial gain despite claiming that it is for political reasons.

They are hijacking women, men and children for their possessions and lives to threaten or human traffick internally or outside of the UK. Victims are hijacked with sound disturbances and threatened for political reasons. It affects the liberty and safety of the individual. We would like support and safety reassurances for victims so that they can access recovery assistance and live normal lives.

 

Protect their Human Rights

You can support our ‘Femme Protects Life’ Campaign to end targeted violence towards women and men, and the Sound Crisis to end assault and abuse.

You can read more about The Sound Crisis Campaign here.

You may have been affected by:

  • online abuse and computer hacking
  • stalking
  • psychological abuse
  • physical abuse and gender abuse
  • financial abuse
  • racial abuse
  • religious abuse

Face of Liberty, Ndabuko Ntuli

Face of Liberty, Ndabuko Ntuli, 96.5cm x 131.7cm, mixed medium

 

Tell us a bit about yourself?
My name is Ndabuko Ntuli, I reside in Johannesburg but originally from the Kwa Zulu Natal , East Coast of South Africa in a village called Nkandla. I am not only an artist but I’m also a practicing traditional healer and a traditional musician with 5 albums behind my name.

 

How would you describe your style and work, and how has it evolved?
My style of work is very original and ethnic, it has 3D layers and layers beneath it, and what makes my work different is because I use trash, like bottle caps, bones and plastic materials – literally anything I can from the streets that I feel like would be useful. I also describe my work as modern and contemporary, using a combination of materials over a tempered canvas surface and trash as a medium of expression showing how my work has evolved not only for me but for the industry as well.

 

What ideas do you express or use in your art?

As a traditional healer, I use throwing bones as my main divination medium, meaning I don’t only do pretty faces and famous influential people but I find myself telling stories and predicting, my work also varies from political views, spiritual and even general issues occurring in that specific time.

 

What are your influences in creating your artwork?
I am a self taught artist which means I never received any formal art training whatsoever, therefore giving me the platform to never limit myself, in fact I break all the rules and  boundaries, which makes my work edgy and unique. I am a dedicated artist with a well advanced attention span and drive to achieve the highest possible standards of production.

What have you been currently working on?
I am currently producing for 2017. I am working on my 10th sculpture and a new gallery as well, expect the unexpected!

What’s your favourite piece?
I consider all my work as my favourites because I work hard but the Desmond Tutu piece is quite close to my heart.

Audrey Hepburn: Portraits of an Icon

National Portrait Gallery | 2 July – 18 October 2015

An unmissable exhibition about Audrey Hepburn, the film star, fashion icon and humanitarian.

Bud Fraker - Audrey Hepburn for Sabrina Paramount Picture (1954)


Bud Fraker – Audrey Hepburn for Sabrina Paramount Pictures (1954)

This exhibition marks 65 years since Audrey Hepburn took to the stage at London night club, Ciro’s. The site of the performance – which marked the beginning of her extraordinary career – is now occupied by the National Portrait Gallery archive.

Iconic portraits by leading 20th century photographers are brought together with intimate personal pictures from the family collection in order to chart Hepburn’s life both on and off the screen. Early photographs capture her difficult childhood in Belgium and Holland, her dedication to ballet practice as a young woman and her first modelling assignments in London – it was during these years she became the face of a campaign for Crookes Lacto-Calamine skin cream.

Watch the video about the exhibition here.

Look out for Mark Shaw’s photo essay about Audrey Hepburn for Life Magazine. He was granted unprecedented access to the star – who was filming Sabrina at the time – and followed her both on and off-set. The pictures provide a unique insight into Hepburn’s life at the height of her fame, and are shown.

Further behind-the-scenes shots are provided by Larry Fried, who captures Hepburn in her dressing room on Broadway for Gigi and Philippe Halsman’s pictures of her in Italy during the filming of War and Peace.

Address: National Portrait Gallery, St Martin’s Place, London, WC2H 0HE

BP Portrait Award 2015

National Portrait Gallery | 18 June – 20 September 2015

Showcasing new art from talented artists from around the world.

This year the competition received the most entries in its history: 2,748 portraits from a record 92 countries were submitted to the judging panel, which includes artist Peter Monkman and historian Simon Schama. Fifty five of the best have been selected for this display at the National Portrait Gallery.

The BP Portrait Award rewards its winner £30,000, as well as a commission worth £5,000 to paint a portrait for the National Portrait Gallery’s permanent collection.

Matan Ben-Cnaan - Annabelle and Guy - 2014

Matan Ben-Cnaan – Annabelle and Guy – 2014

Look out for the three top-placed finalists are included in the exhibition.

Matan Ben-Cnaan, Annabelle and Guy (first prize)

Ben-Cnaan hails from the north of Israel and studied fine arts at Haifa University. His allegorical portrait is partly inspired by the biblical story of Jephthah – an Israelite judge who vowed to God that should he emerge victorious from battle with the Ammonites, he would sacrifice the first thing to greet him on his home-coming. To his horror it is his daughter who rushes out in welcome, but he upholds his vow and sacrifices his child. Ben-Cnaan casts his friend Guy and Guy’s step-daughter Annabelle as the lead characters in a contemporary re-imagining of the tale.

Michael Gaskell, Eliza (second prize)

Leceister-based Michael Gaskell is no stranger to the BP Portrait Award; he has been selected for exhibitions five times and won second prize on three occasions [judged anonymously]. This year his shortlisted portrait is of his niece Eliza, who agreed to sit for him in early 2014 at the age of 14. Gaskell hopes the painting conveys a sense of Eliza’s growing confidence as she develops into a woman, yet also of her self-conciousness at the time of sitting. The aesthetics of the piece were strongly influenced by the work of the 15th-century painter Hans Memling, who the artist was researching at the time.

Borja Buces Renard, My Mother and My Brother on a Sunday Evening (third prize)

Borja Buces Renard’s captured this portrait of his mother Paloma and his brother Jaime at his parents’ home during one of their weekly Sunday gatherings. His father Jose Antonio had not been able to join them for some time as he was suffering from a progressively debilitating illness. The artist wanted to capture the emotion of the meeting, the missing image of his father particularly difficult for the whole family. Sadly Jose Antonio died just a few weeks after it was finished, and the piece is dedicated to his memory, as well as to Paloma who had dedicated herself to taking care of him.

Damien Hirst

Pier Arts Centre | 20 June – 12 September 2015

A display of work by Damien Hirst, the infamous Young British Artist who dominated the art scene in the UK during the 1990s.

Damien Hirst - Away from Flock (1994)

Away from the Flock (1994)

In 1991 Charles Saatchi offered to fund whatever artwork Damien Hirst wanted to make. The result was The Physical Impossibility of Death in the Mind of Someone Living – a £6,000 shark corpse floating in a formaldehyde vitrine. It was displayed in the Young British Artists first exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery the following year, and its reception catapulted Hirst into the public spotlight.

Here a range of Hirst’s work is shown alongside the centre’s collection of pieces by his close friend Margaret Mellis – an important mentor during the development of his early career. Mellis was one of the last survivors of the modernist artists that gathered in St Ives in the 1940s, and she played an important role in establishing the prestige of the colony. Hirst has publicly lamented that her work has been unduly neglected.

Jeff Koons

Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery | 9 May – 6 September 2015

Jeff Koons is an American artist known for his kitsch reproductions of banal objects.

Jeff Koons - Winter Bears - 1988

Winter Bears – 1988

Koons rose to prominence in the mid-1980s as part of a new generation who wanted to explore the meaning of art in a media-saturated era. His work is praised for its originality and influence, although Koons has stated that there are no hidden meanings, nor critiques.

The artist developed a colour-by-numbers system, so that each of his 100 or so assistants could execute his canvases and sculptures as if they had been done ‘by a single hand’. He has said of his work: ‘I think art takes you outside yourself, takes you past yourself.

‘I believe that my journey has really been to remove my own anxiety. That’s the key. The more anxiety you can remove, the more free you are to make that gesture, whatever the gesture is.’

This exhibition will include works in a variety of media to showcase his remarkably diverse art practice.
