Jiska Huizing is a Dutch artist, musician and DJ living and working in Oslo, Norway.
Their artistic practice is a reflection on the world’s coexisting realities; how everything is relative and in constant change. Working with media such as sound, photography, books, drawing, text and hikes, they create work that contains a sense of searching and of wandering, and that questions how we perceive our surroundings. Huizing’s projects are often developed over a longer time, either in the form of a series or a single work that is in constant flux. These projects interconnect through an interest in how we create systems and structures in order to reach a level of understanding, while inherently containing certain instability as well. Based on this they build collections, often with changing structures, which are activated by the viewer. The project’s flexibility and openness offer space for curiosity, like blanks on a map.
Huizing holds an MA from the Bergen Academy of Arts and Design and their work has been presented in Norway, Sweden, Finland, the Netherlands and Croatia. Besides their artistic practice, Huizing also releases and plays music, is a DJ and runs the record label Ideophone Records.
