Ira Eduardovna was born in Uzbekistan. She currently lives and works in NY. Eduardovna’s work reconstructs narratives of autobiographical nature and examines issues of migration and identity in flux through non-linear storytelling. Her video installations examine the border of video and architecture and the influence of architecture on the experience of time and memory.
