Billy is an artist featured in our screening programme.


Billy holds a BA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martins, London. His work has previously been featured at Deptford Cinema, LCC studio, The Horse Hospital, and The Rag Factory.

Sassi’s wider practice rests somewhere between the performative and the object-based. Using imitation, repetition, failure and humour, he performs masculinities in order to question the constructed nature of singular and group identities. Sassi’s personal presence is vital to his performances, presenting his own identity for critique. His work incorporates props, set and costume – the objects evolving as physical reiterations of his performances once they have passed. Ranging from magic shows to scout expeditions and spending an inordinately long time choosing cereal in the supermarket, Sassi’s performances push the limitations of audience endurance and the framework of spectatorship.
