Spike Island presents a major exhibition of new works by British artist Veronica Ryan (b. 1956, Montserrat). Supported by Freelands Foundation through the annual Freelands Award, this is Ryan’s largest and most ambitious exhibition in the UK to date. Ryan’s work draws on her enquiries into ancestral history as well as experiences of place, home, memory and loss. Her work is characterised by an interest in containment and the container, probing the poetic associations around what is hidden or revealed. In her sculptures and installations, Ryan brings together a wide range of techniques and materials that vary from cast forms in plaster, clay, bronze and aluminium, to more ephemeral found materials such as dried flowers, fruit, feathers and dust. These material combinations create fragile propositions that convey the personal and psychological residue held within objects, and interrogate collective processes such as the exportation of agricultural commodities, the migration of peoples and notions of diaspora.
