Feral, the first issue of Unlikely - Journal for Creative Arts is now online!



Unlikely is a transdisciplinary journal, which aims to open unexpected spaces for artistic exchange and scholarly conversations across mediums, disciplines and continents. It offers artists working in practice-led research the chance to participate in and explore a range of practical and theoretical contemporary art concerns. An experiment in form, Unlikely engages its audience and contributors in a two-stage process of live event, presenting creative practitioners’ works, followed by peer-reviewed electronic publication. Unlikely works with an international editorial board and a large panel of peer-reviewers.

Issue 01: Feral is now online

Editors: Alexis Harley and Norie Neumark

‘Feral’ is the first issue of Unlikely. Undisciplined, disorderly, and extravagant, ferals disrupt and rewrite practices, places, and cultures. To be or do feral is to misbehave, to disregard rules, boundaries and the very conditions of orderly movement. Ferals are both above and beneath domestication, un-homely, unstable, uncanny. Always out of place, these biotic hitchhikers prefer to take over the whole damn road.

The works in this issue examine or enact the stigmatization or the celebration of ferals, investigate or dismantle the cultural category ‘feral’, or themselves refuse domestication, go wild, and participate in the dismantling of stable ecologies. They include works that are transdisciplinary or cross arts or more or less disciplined, including writing, performance, media art, sound work, video.

This first issue includes contributions by Rebecca A. Adelman, Helen Addison-Smith, Ian Andrews and Eric Bridgeman and Ruark Lewis, Ben Byrne and Dale Gorfinkel and Anthony Magen, Emily Carr, Gonzalo Ceballos and Renuka Rajiv, Robyn Ferrell, Katherine Gibson and Kate Rich, Silvana Iannello, Hester Joyce, and Nick Moore.
