VSSL is a container for performance and time-based art processes & practices
Established by artists Joseph Morgan Schofield and Benjamin Sebastian, and situated in Deptford, VSSL is a place of gathering, a site for artistic production, dedicated to the holding and nourishment of performance art and its satellites.
VSSL is both a studio and platform for Sebastian and Schofield’s projects, including F U T U R E R I T U A L and ]performance s p a c e[. The studio is also a residency site and performance venue, activated with our initial programme: Gathering in a Time of Plague.
We intend that VSSL becomes a place of gathering - a place where our communities can meet and grow. Please be in touch with questions, invitations and collaborative possibilities.
