7th Annual Transmodern Festival April 15 – April 18, 2010


    pluSince 1991 Vicki Bennett has been making CDs, radio, and A/V multimedia under the name People Like Us. Ever since she has been animating and recontextualising found footage collages with an equally witty and dark view of popular culture with a surrealistic edge, both pre-recorded and in a live setting. Vicki has shown work at, amongst others, Tate Modern, The National Film Theatre, Purcell Room, The ICA, Sydney Opera House, Pompidou Centre, Sonar in Barcelona and The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis. She has also performed radio sessions for BBC’s John Peel, Mixing It, and also CBC, KPFA and does a regular radio show on WFMU which has had over 3/4 million realplayer hits.

    2008 saw the launch of the first People Like Us Retrospective, at alt.gallery in Newcastle Upon Tyne, a feature in The Wire, the release of online-only album Rhapsody in Glue with artist Ergo Phizmiz, and a CD curated for Sonic Arts Network entitled Smiling Through My Teeth.

    Vicki recently completed and exhibited the Great North Run Moving Image Commission 2009, and is now touring a new live A/V set entitled Genre Collage, premiering at Vancouver New Music Festival and BFI Southbank.
