Residency

From Electric Picnic Website.

 

Electric Picnic - Artists in residence.

Cody is a multi-discipline artist, whose work extends across music composition, video, drawing, photography and painting.

He has performed as a singer/guitarist in many venues in Dublin and Cork, as well as exhibiting his artworks in London Berlin, Manhattan, and recently as far as Kathmandu!

Several of his works can also be found in the Irish State Collection.

Cody will bring his music video installation ‘DEAD’ to this year’s Electric Picnic.

‘DEAD’ is a sarcastic, humorous take on a typical conversation between two so called ‘friends’.
