Vicky Langan (b.1986) is a Cork-based artist whose practice operates across several often overlapping fields, chiefly performance, sound, and film. Since 2010, Langan and experimental filmmaker Maximilian Le Cain have been working together in a unique creative audio-visual partnership. This is built on the strikingly fitting match between Langan’s magnetic, often troublingly intense presence as a performer and Le Cain’s distinctively jarring, disruptive visual rhythms. So far, they have completed ten moving image works together and have been awarded a residency at the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris, for 2017. As a curator, Langan is known for Black Sun Cork, a platform for world-class underground music and experimental cinema in Ireland that she founded in 2009.
