The incredibly talented Úna Burke is the second creative to collaborate with SHOWstudio on our re-imagined gallery space, the SHOWcabinet. Our team have been busy working away in our new Motcomb Street gallery and the exhibition is now installed and open to the public!
Burke's beautiful leather bound pieces take centre stage within the latest exhibition, which looks at the original understanding of the word 'prosthetic', meaning 'to add', 'to equip' or 'to enhance'. A mesmerising selection of rare artefacts and artworks are on show - including specially-shipped-in couture gowns from Yiqing Yin, sculptural fashion pieces from Ana Rajcevic and fragile structures and headpieces from British designer Patrick Ian Hartley - alongside a new fashion film from Marie Schuller.
The prosthetics SHOWcabinet opens its doors to the public today, Thursday 18 April, and is open Monday to Friday, 11:00 - 18:00 BST, at 19 Motcomb Street, Belgravia, SW1X 8LB.
