Kit Holden-Ada

Kit Holden-Ada is a multidisciplinary settler artist and craftsperson of Scottish/Irish/English ancestry born and raised on the prairies (Treaty 2) and currently based in Kjiputktuk, Mi’kma’ki (Halifax, NS). They studied at NSCAD University from 2002-2009 with a focus on ceramics, metalsmithing and sound and have been producing a line of handmade adornment, Fervour’s Own Jewellery, since 2011. Alongside this work they maintain slow engagement with an interdisciplinary art practice that favours collaboration and centers art making as an embodiment practice. Their work integrates curious explorations of (queer) relationality, lineage, discipline and play, often in close relationship with the body and the elements.
