The moment we think of the world as disenchanted . . . we set limits to the ways the past can be narrated.
—Dipesh Chakrabarty

An unremarkable random '70s newsreel from the artists’ hometown in Soviet Siberia forms the substrate for a relentless exploration of the representational and narratological techniques. Without ever collapsing into a “story” or abstraction, Horizōn recants the relationship between analog and digital, surface and reference, sense and experience, past and present.

Sid Iandovka and Anya Tsyrlina (both born in Novosibirsk, USSR) are an artist-duo whose practice extends across many different media, predominantly moving images. Though only selected works of theirs are co-authored in a traditional sense, as both have distinct interests and aesthetics, they have collaborated (on and off) for over twenty years—ultimately creating a joint, entirely independent, “homemade” production approach for their films.
