Langan & Le Cain @ The Avant

Vicky Langan and I have so far created five moving image works in our ongoing creative partnership. These will all be screened at The Guesthouse this Sunday as part of The Avant festival.

Contact (2011) sets up a dialectical relationship between a figure in an 8mm film, and the film image she inhabits. Wölflinge 17/11/’10 (2011) is a haunting visual interpretation of a performance by Langan that breaks down the boundaries between spectator and performer. Light / Sound (2010) chronicles the ghostly, sonic encounter between Langan, out hunting for sound with her recording apparatus, and an ancient 35mm projector. Hereunder (2011) is an intense, fragmented (auto)biographical portrait of Vicky, which sets her adrift amidst lockers of garden shed bric-a-brac from which she summons an ocean of sound. And Desk 13 (2011) brings a darker, more erotic aspect of our vision to the fore.

This screening takes place at the end of a day packed with performances, as well The Guesthouse's regular Sunday Lunch. Visit The Avant website for a full list of the day's events at The Guesthouse.

Many thanks to Rouzbeh Rashidi for designing our poster!
