Maximilian Le Cain and Vicky Langan

Maximilian Le Cain and Vicky Langan 

August - August 2017

Since 2010, Vicky Langan and Maximilian Le Cain have worked together in an audio-visual partnership that has resulted in thirteen moving image works to date. This is built on the fitting match between Langan’s magnetic, troublingly intense presence as a performer and Le Cain’s distinctively jarring, disruptive visual rhythms. In 2017, they received an Arts Council of Ireland award to make Inside, their first feature film. Le Cain makes experimental films that explore a personal relationship with cinema as a site of haunting. Langan’s practice operates across several overlapping fields, chiefly performance, sound and film. Her vulnerable, emotionally charged work envelops audiences in an aura of dark intimacy. They are both affiliated with the Dublin-based Experimental Film Society. Their film Light/Sound (2010) is part of the permanent collection of the Collectif Jeune Cinéma in Paris. They are developing new work during their residency at CCI.

Stephen Gunning

Stephen Gunning

Visual artist Paul Nugent brings together acts of memory and representation in religious symbolism, re-imagined in a uniquely modern format. Using photographic reproductions of 18th century paintings in art history books, he blends the visual currency of photography and painting and explores the symbolic furnishings of the inter-text. His works have been widely exhibited and form part of public collections at the Office of Public Works, Irish Museum of Modern Arts and Dublin City University, as well as in private collections. Originally from Dublin, the artist continues to work in the city. He also works at the National College of Art and Design as a lecturer of Fine Art Painting.

October - December 2002

A painter living and practicing in Galway, Fionna Murray is the CCI’s first artist-in-residence. Her widely exhibited paintings and works on paper explore the uncertainties ingrained in a fragmentary world.  Observing interior spaces, her paintings emanate a quiet radiance through her use of soft and muted palettes.  Her works feature in public and private collections at home and abroad. She also lectures in Drawing and Painting in Galway. http://www.fionnamurray.com/
