Multidisciplinary artist Vicky Langan has been announced as the artist-in-residence for Belfast's Imagine Festival of Ideas & Politics, and will perform at The 343 on March 30. She topped our list of the the best Irish tracks of 2018 with 'The Palms', a field recording at the grotto in Granard, Co. Longford on the 30th anniversary of Ann Lovett's death, whose proceeds went to the Together For Yes campaign in May 2018.
Vicky Langan is a Cork-based artist whose practice operates across several often-overlapping fields – chiefly performance, sound, and film. She both embraces and projects vulnerability, offering an intimate territory loaded with raw sensuality, personal symbolism and unguarded emotion. Her work is resolutely personal and rooted in the internal processing of intense private feeling. At a moment in Irish society where long repressed voices are taking centre stage, Langan’s insistence on articulating a private space of disturbance and trauma is a stark reminder that, beyond the public discourses, a legacy of submerged wounds remains.
Tickets are priced £8.80 here, or £10 on the door. Doors open at 9pm.
