Artist’ Bio
Vicky Langan (b. 1986) is a Cork-based artist whose practice operates across several often overlapping fields, chiefly performance, sound, and film.

Langan both embraces and projects vulnerability, offering an intimate territory loaded with personal symbolism and unguarded emotion.

With a focus on the sounds of the body and its functions, involving contact-­miked skin, amplified breath and live electronic manipulation,

Langan’s work sits between sound and performance art. Using simple raw materials such as domestic objects, hair and magnetic tape, she layers physical gestures and scraps of sound to create intensely personal imaginary landscapes. Mundane domesticity is explored as a temporal space where the material body and sensual inner worlds mesh. In opening herself emotionally, she creates warm yet discomforting rituals that at once embrace the viewer and remain resolutely private, exploring the limits of what can be shared between people and what must remain mysterious.
