The Body Extended: Sculpture and Prosthetics is a new exhibition at the Henry Moore institute in Leeds which explores how artists have responded to developments in prosthetics technology, especially after the First World War. The curator, Lisa Le Feuvre, explains how artists were first involved in making artificial body parts and how that has inspired their art.
