About The Ryan Sisters
The Ryan Sisters is a collaboration between sisters Pip Ryan and Natalie Ryan which exists outside their own practices. Together they explore ideas that are associated with humour, horror, death and the absurd. Using combination of spatial installation and intervention they reference these themes while playing with dualities that exist between the merging of their identities.
