A Published Event (Justy Phillips and Margaret Woodward)

Libraries of Stone and Wood

A Published Event (Justy Phillips and Margaret Woodward) makes long-term relational artworks through shared acts of public telling. Exploring chance encounter, constructed situations and the shared authorship of lived experience. Working with artists and writers, materials and ideas, we create fictiōnal writing, prose, book-works, video, installation and performance. Our hybrid works—a kind of fusing-distilling-slagging-attuning to the local—explore the metaphysical language and speculative publishing of lived experience. A Published Event is an offering to participate. A cut that releases and absorbs. Leaks and floods. In relations of body, duration and event. Propelled by a desire to connect with the more-than-human elements of everyday life, we seek a kind of solidarity built on affective attunement. Through our libraries of stone and wood we move speculatively but with conviction, implicated in every act of making-public, always with each other. In this Art Forum we will share ideas of authorship, publishing and contemporary art through two current slow-publishing projects, Lost Rocks (2017–21) and The People’s Library, 2018.

A Published Event are long term participants in the cultural ecology of Tasmania. A graduate of the Royal College of Art (1999), London, Justy Phillips has a PhD from RMIT University (2015) and is currently Lecturer in Critical Practices at the School of Creative Arts, University of Tasmania. Margaret Woodward is Adjunct Associate Professor of Design at Charles Sturt University and holds a PhD from Curtin University (2009). They currently hold positions on the boards of Contemporary Art Tasmania (Phillips) and Creative Island (Woodward). Their collaborative, experimental practice has been published widely in Australia, Europe and Canada. www.apublishedevent.net
