The Finnish artist Antti Laitinen (b. 1975) uses photography, sculpture, video, performance, installation and conceptual objects as his media. He draws inspiration from his everyday environment by deconstructing it – collecting, cutting, bending, digging and rearranging. Requiring hours of physical effort and activity to create, his works inspire contemplation of our relationship with the environment. Laitinen has shown his work in numerous solo and group exhibitions around the world and his work is represented in various public and private art collections.
