Veronica Ryan: 'I'm interested in contradiction and paradox'

Meet the Turner Prize-winning artist who makes sculptural works from materials including teabags and vegetable trays

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 won the Turner Prize 2022 and was shown at Tate Liverpool, 20 October 2022 – 19 March 2023.
