Sandy Kennedy is an Irish artist. She looks at communicating human fragility to others through sensory experiences and perceptions and develops poetic, open ended works, where a sense of self unfolds in shifting gestures using moving image, text and augmented sound. At its core her work explores dissociation, dreamlike waking states and sound as a visceral sensory perceptive tool. Moments interweaving to reveal hidden 'narratives' in a rhapsody of sound and image, moving beyond the sensory to be carried deep in the body.

 Her interdisciplinary practice includes painting, drawing, photography, installation but more recently film. A member of Visual Artists Ireland, At Home Studios and Lux Critical Forum Dublin, she studied fine art at Chelsea School of art London and film and sound at The National Film School IADT Dun Laoghaire, Dublin.
 Kennedy has been a recipient of Film Bursary, Professional Development, and Agility Awards from the Arts Council of Ireland. Most recently she completed a feature length film work, At Sea, funded by an Arts Council Film Project Award. Her work is part of the collection of the Arts Council of Ireland.

Her film The Incorporeal Body of a Shadow Soul 2021 [made with a Short Grass Film Bursary award from Kildare County Council] was part of 'In the long now', the 2022 touring programme curated by www.aemi.ie. This programme of artist films premiered at CIFF, [Cork International Film Festival], November 9th 2021 and in 2022 screened at WORM Rotterdam, Film huis Cavia, The Model Sligo, Garter Lane Arts Centre, Visual Carlow, and Galleri Format Malmo.
