Artists and writer, Justy Phillips makes long-term relational artworks through shared acts of public telling. Together with artist Margaret Woodward, she is co-founder of the Australian artist collaborative, A Published Event. Exploring chance encounter, constructed situations and the shared authorship of lived experience, we work with artists and writers, materials and ideas, writing, prose, book-works, video, installation and performance. Their hybrid works—a kind of fusing-distilling-slagging-attuning to the local(e)—explore the metaphysical language and speculative publishing of lived experience. Through publishing-as-art-practice, A Published Event is an offering to participate. Together they co-compose complex fields of social, cultural and political relations by testing the proposition of a telling event. Propelled by a desire to connect with the more-than-human elements of everyday life, A Published Event seeks a kind of solidarity built on affective attunement. Phillips regularly undertakes local and international fieldwork and residencies, participates in exhibitions, arts festivals and artist’s book fairs and shares her work at national and international academic institutions. In 2017, A Published Event was selected as collaborating artists in the Banff International Curatorial Institute’s Residency Geologic Time curated by Max Andrews and Mariana Capena Luna (Latitudes), with faculty, Sean Lynch (Ireland). Two of their 2017 publications, Crocoite by Margaret Woodward and Fall of the Derwent by A Published Event were long-listed as finalists in the Premier’s Literary Awards, Tasmania, Australia. Phillips hold a PhD in Creative Media from RMIT University, Melbourne.
