I’ll be the artist-in-residence for this year’s Imagine. The Belfast Festival of Ideas & Politics (25th – 31st March). Looking forward to working at The 343, a vibrant, artist-focused, feminist queer space in East Belfast, where I’ll be doing a performance at the end of my stay.

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.
Vicky has a long-standing collaborative partnership with the experimental filmmaker Maximilian Le Cain and is an associate of the Dublin based Experimental Film Society. She is a recipient of bursary awards from Cork City Council and the Arts Council of Ireland.
Vicky Langan is supported by Music Network’s Music Capital Scheme, funded by The Department of Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht.
