TateShots presents a video about the life and work of Leonora Carrington (1917-2011), seen through the eyes of Joanna Moorhead, a journalist and the artist's cousin. The film is republished with the permission of The Guardian.

The first section of the video is devoted to reviewing how Moorhead, after many years, decided to seek out her cousin for the first time. Moorhead tells the story her grandmother had related about Carrington, the artist's relationship with Max Ernst, and the reasons why the artist emigrated to Mexico.

The last section features an informal interview where Leonora speaks about her work, her family, the  "visual world", objects in space, and other topics.
