Multidisciplinary artist Vicky Langan performs at Dublin's The Big Romance on April 18. 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, the proceeds of which 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. She curated Belfast's Imagine programme, and will be using the custom built soundsystem at the Big Romance for some experimental sounds.
Admission is completely free and doors open at 9pm.
