One of 20 cast porcelain cocoa pods produced on the occasion of Ryan’s major exhibition 'Along a Spectrum' at Spike Island (20th May–5th September 2021). This pod was then exhibited in 'Life Support: Forms of Care in Art and Activism' at Glasgow Women's Library (14th August–16th October 2021). Text accompanying the Spike Island exhibition read: 'Fruits, seeds, plants and vegetables are recurring motifs in Ryan’s sculpture – they function metaphorically for the artist’s own sense of dislocation and, more widely, they allude to a history of trading across the globe. In Ryan’s work, personal experience is often conditioned by a sense of location. An important focus of her research is on the history of Montserrat and trying to identify its early culture prior to the arrival of the Europeans.
