Flis Holland

(FI/UK, they/them)

Flis Holland’s DFA is in the terrain of cyclical depression, working to counteract its compressive force and find room for manoeuvre. To do so they build and relentlessly adjust a series of seemingly over-engineered viewing devices.

As part of their DFA studies Holland has held solo exhibitions at Project Room (2014), Sinne (2015) and Galleria Huuto (2015); and a seminar “Frustrated Witness” at the research pavilion of the 56th Venice Biennale (2015).

Holland has taught the thematic theoretical studies MFA course K-KM34-S21B “Glitching Bodies”. It looks at the disruptive power of errors, miscommunications and selective refusals, and their uses in art practice.
