Ciara Phillips’ Dazzle Ship Scotland to remain in Leith into 2017

2 September 2016

Following the extraordinarily positive response to Ciara Phillips’ Dazzle Ship Scotland at Prince of Wales Dock, Leith, we are delighted to announce that the work will remain at the docks into 2017. The extension of the exhibition dates has been in partnership with The Royal Yacht Britannia Trust.

Every Woman is a great example of the legacy that we hope to build with EAF. The piece has
reimagined and opened up unexpected spaces and areas of the city, and the extension of exhibition
dates will enable us to share this important piece of work with communities well beyond the festival.’

Sorcha Carey, Director of Edinburgh Art Festival

Every Woman by the Turner Prize-nominated and Glasgow-based artist, Ciara Phillips, is the fourth in the series of Dazzle Ships that has been commissioned across the country, and the first Dazzle Ship to be presented in Scotland. Phillips ‘dazzled’ The Fingal, to mark 100 years since the Battle of Jutland, and the ship was unveiled on 25 May 2016 to take part in the centenary commemorations of the First World War. For the past three months the ship has proven to be an incredibly popular attraction, becoming a much-loved part of the Leith landscape and the surrounding community. Edinburgh Art Festival has worked with, amongst others, pupils from Wardie Primary and Trinity Academy, a reminiscence project with women from Port of Leith Housing Association and a group of adults from Upward Mobility.
