A Published Event

A Published Event

A Published Event is the collaborative art practice of Justy Phillips and Margaret Woodward. Their practice of speculative eventing is driven by chance encounter, constructed situations and the shared authorship of lived experience. Their work uses language—written, spoken and performed—to publish thresholds of more-than-human experience. They make relational artworks through book-works, installations, and live performances of written works that seek to expand and experiment the interface between acts of making and making-public (publishing). Recent works include the hybrid-performance library, The People’s Library (2018), slow-publishing library, Lost Rocks (2017–21) and hydrographic score, Fall of the Derwent (2016).
