on top ofPhilippa recently contributed to the annual World Book Night event organised by Sarah Bodman of UWE. This year’s theme was based on the text ‘Watching God’ one of the short stories within Three Moments of an Explosion by China Miéville. The brief was to read the story and send a visual response to the text. The work was exhibited from 1st – 30th April 2018 in the study area at Bower Ashton Library, Bristol. The work has only been collated and published as a paperback ‘ur-text’ which is in keeping with the book’s theme. The title is Their Eyes Were Watching God – the book searched for but never found.

A copy of the artist’s book has been accepted by Tate Britain for their artist’s book collection.

A copy of the book can be ordered here.

in the blue notebook

April 20, 2018

Philippa and Tamar MacLellan – a regular contributor to the Caseroom catalogue, recently submitted a co-written essay to The Blue Notebook Journal Vol 12, No.2– (published by Impact Press).
The article examines the collaborative practice of Tamar MacLellan and Philippa Wood through three of their most recent artists’ book projects. Having taken the decision to undertake new ways of working, the aim is to share something of this journey drawing upon pivotal WordPress blog posts which enabled the sharing and exchanging of individual, intellectual and emotional responses within the development of each project.
A big thank you to Sarah Bodman for publishing it, and our thanks too to Angie Butler who proof-read the first draft and offered invaluable feedback.

type tells tales

May 8, 2017

Many, many months ago we were approached by someone working for Steven Heller to see if we were interested in having some work published in a new book he was producing with Gail Anderson – needless to say we jumped at the chance – and last week the rather wonderful Type Tells Tales arrived on our desk. We feel honoured to be in such company as Werkman, Sam Winston, Paula Scher, Robert Massin, Marian Bantjes and many more type heroes and heroines.
