Seeds, fruit, vegetable trays, volcanic ash, teabags, dried flowers and cushions. These are just some of the objects that British artist Veronica Ryan uses in her colourful sculptural works, based on organic forms but which allude to complex historical networks of commercial exchange.
In this film, Veronica Ryan takes us inside the fabrication studio at Bristol’s Spike Island where a lot of her artworks are made. She also takes us shopping down Ridley Road Market in East London, just round the corner from her public sculptures honouring the Windrush Generation.
Veronica Ryan is nominated for the Turner Prize 2022. Find out more about the Prize and the exhibition at Tate Liverpool: https://www.tate.org.uk/whats-on/tate-liverpool/turner-prize-2022
