Event description
Jasper Llewellyn will work durationally, to the tidal rhythm of the Thames, beginning on the shore and continuing at VSSL.

About this Event

VSSL studio is delighted to host this performance by Jasper Llewellyn. Between April and July, VSSL will host a season of seven performance works as part of our innagural programme Gathering In A Time of Plague. Llewellyn's work is the second of these performance works.

Working to the tidal rhythm of the Thames, Jasper Llewellyn’s work will begin on the shore of the river, before continuing at VSSL.

The work for VSSL contributes to a larger body of action-based interventions that Llewellyn has undertaken on the Thames foreshore in Deptford since mid-2020, most of which have been conducted without an audience. This ongoing series of actions are  embodied attempts to attune to the diverse array of affective and nonhuman entities that comprise the assemblage that we term ‘the Thames’, reimagining our relationship to the river as a whole in the process.

Mindful of the pandemic, and the continuing restrictions on large outdoor gatherings, audiences are invited to book limited places for the riverside element of the performance (beginning at 4pm in Deptford).

We will email ticketholders nearer the 8th to confirm the exact meeting point.

Covid-19: Audiences will be asked to wear a mask for the duration of the performance, and we will temperature check audiences on arrival. If you are displaying symptoms of coronavirus, please do not attend.

Jasper Llewellyn is an artist working with actions, sounds and words. His ongoing PHD research project involves the deployment of various embodied artistic strategies in order to take an expanded view of improvisation, treating it both as a methodology for living and art-making. He makes music with the project ‘caroline’ and has had writing published in Frieze magazine.
