Coming from different educational backgrounds – Sirah studied at P.A.R.T.S (Performing Arts Research and Training Studios), Brussels and Eitan studied at the Gerrit Rietveld Academie, Amsterdam – their work aims to challenge the performative aspects in the moving image. In their latest film Printed Matter and their film/installation Journal they question the spatial and durational potentialities in the reading of photographs that carry a common visual language and historical narratives.
These days Sirah and Eitan are establishing a distribution and production platform together with Pieter Geenen and Robbrecht Desmet.
