Emma Fitts has been part of the collaborative duo Fitts & Holderness since 2001. Currently working between the UK and New Zealand they make immersive fictions and investigate unsolved disappearances and other mysteries.
Fitts & Holderness have exhibited throughout independent spaces in New Zealand, Australia and the United Kingdon, with their modes of production varying to include video footage, photography, audio, objects and documents. Fitts & Holderness often work with the media and ‘real life’ outside of their constructed narrative to increase the unpredictability of the project’s outcomes including the use of posters, public notices and fictions featured in newspaper articles. Their work has also included making publications such as the inaugural issue of journal Psychedomus.
Emma Fitts completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at the University of Canterbury in 2002 and a Masters of Fine Art from the Glasgow School of Art in 2010 where she co-founded the collaborative print and exhibition project Victor & Hester. Currently based in the UK Emma has played an active role in both exhibitions and residencies on an international level, including Creative Lab at the Centre of Contemporary Art Glasgow (UK), Cove Park Scotland (UK) and the Olivia Spencer Bower residency fellow for 2014 (NZ).
