Born in 1982 in Hawaii, Bianca Casady, whose mother is an artist and sister is her musical partner in the duo Cocorosie, had no formal education after the age of 16. She studied linguistics, sociology, visual arts and writing on her own. Her work, both as a musician and a visual artist is highly varied, experimental, subversive, yet integrated. Casady is responsible for the visual components of her band Cocorosie – designing album art, background projections, makeup and costumes. Her gallery and museum installations elucidate a multifaceted design. Casady’s music and art are radical developments in today’s contemporary art mix.
Recent projects include choreographing and directing two dance works, performed in March at Kampnagel in Hamburg. She and her sister, Sierra, curated the Donaufestival 2012 Festival, a music and performance festival in Krems, Austria, held in April. In February, Casady, in collaboration with her mother and sister, participated in the Arts in Marrakech International Biennale (4th Edition).
