An interview with Kelly Knox!

Follow on from our exclusive chat with Una Burke and our double interview with Patrick Ian Hartley and Dr Ian Thompson, we've launched a video of model Kelly Knox in conversation with Lou Stoppard. The interview is part of our Prosthetics: Conversations series, and sees Knox discuss her extraordinary life and career.

Knox was born without her left forearm but, from the age of seven, refused to wear a prosthetic arm. Her modelling career began after winning Britain's Missing Top Model in 2008. Throughout her career she has aimed to break down the constraints of and negativity towards disability. In this interview she discusses her decision to live and model without a prosthetic, as well as her experiences of working in an image-based industry. Listen to Knox in conversation with Stoppard here.

Remember, this series correlates with our current exhibition, SHOWcabinet: Prosthetics, which explores the ability of the prosthetic to adorn, equip and enhance. The exhibition closes this Friday, 31 May, so be sure to make a visit to 19 Motcomb Street, London, this week.
