Sid Iandovka and Anya Tsyrlina

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. Their working methods are not products of any  educational/professional institutions and their practice is not rooted in any state; it is immaterial and doesn’t benefit from any national/international funding, resources or structures. The artists prefer for their own histories and words to remain in the background - but it’s not essential to know the whys and hows of these works, since there’s an almost alchemical and mystical quality to them that supersedes their construction.
