Turner Prize nominee Ciara Phillips discusses her fascination with the serendipitous nature of the printing process in this intimate film shot whilst at work at the Glasgow Print Studio



‘I tried to use the gallery much like I would my own studio’ says print-maker Ciara Phillips on her solo exhibition held at The Showroom galley in London that won her the nomination.

Titled Workshop (2010 - ongoing), she transformed the gallery into a temporary print workshop, inviting designers, artists and local community groups to make prints with her. ‘You might find something happening, or you might not, depending on where I was in the process of the show.’

For the Turner Prize exhibition, Phillips is presenting an immersive display of prints to further explore the process of making, collaboration, and chance encounters that occur in the medium of print as a way of negotiating ideas.
