Sculptor Veronica Ryan wins prestigious Turner Prize for Contemporary Art

London, 7 December. British sculptor Veronica Ryan, 66, received the Turner Prize on Wednesday, the most prestigious contemporary art award in the United Kingdom, for two projects in which she honors Caribbean immigrants from the 1950s and 1960s, and the effects of the coronavirus pandemic. Investigates.

The artist, born on the island of Montserrat, a British overseas territory southeast of Puerto Rico, was announced as the winner of the £25,000 (29,000 euro) prize, at a ceremony held in Liverpool (northern England).

The jury valued the “personal and poetic way in which he expands the language of sculpture”, and praised his mastery of space, color and scale.

The first of the works awarded is a sculpture group located in an alleyway in the London neighborhood of Hackney.

The three pieces of bronze and marble represent an apple, a breadfruit (Artocarpus altilis) and a soursop, three tropical fruits common in the Caribbean and American regions.

She was also recognized for “Along a Spectrum”, a composition with which she explores the personal perceptions and narratives that have emerged during the pandemic.

Helen Legge, Tate Liverpool gallery director, said “Ryan” is interested in psychology and migration, loss, trauma, movement, nurture. There’s a lot about mother-daughter relationships.

Legg said, “All these threads seem to be intertwined in her work. It’s very difficult to explain what Veronica Ryan’s work is about because there are so many things involved, it’s about all of them.”

Liverpool Modern Art Gallery is hosting an exhibition until March with works by Ryan and the other three Turner finalists: Heather Philipson, Ingrid Pollard and Sin Y Kin.
