The Ryan Sisters is a collaboration between sisters Pip and Natalie Ryan that exists outside their own practice. They were both born in Noble Park and live in Melbourne, Victoria. Together they explore ideas associated with humor, the uncanny, death and the absurd. Using a combination of spatial installation and intervention, they reference these themes while playing with dualities that exist between the merging of their identities.
