Coinciding with our SHOWcabinet: Prosthetics exhibition, SHOWstudio engages in the discussions and debates surrounding disability by offering artists, models and thinkers an open forum to communicate their views and research. From historical attitudes towards disability to the fashion industry's treatment of diverse bodies, the essays, films and recordings will unpick prosthetics from all angles. Throughout the course of the exhibition - which is on show now at 19 Motcomb Street, London - we'll be releasing a different talk every few days. First up is Una Burke in conversation with Niamh White. The Irish artist talks about her artworks that are featured in the exhibition, her interest in prosthetics and the processes and inspirations behind her work.
Watch Burke's interview now, and stay tuned for video conversations with model Kelly Knox, All Walks founder and diversity champion Caryn Franklin, and a double interview with artist Patrick Ian Hartley and maxillofacial expert Dr Ian Thompson, who have formed a dynamic creative relationship. We'll also be launching an audio interview with artist Kat Marks and an essay by historian Dr David Turner that will focus on the way in which artificial limbs were sold as objects of fashion and desire around the turn of the 19th century.
