Tuomas A. Laitinen
Tuomas A. Laitinen is a Finnish multidisciplinary artist who works with moving image, sound, light, glass, chemical, and microbial processes, as well as computer-generated simulations to explore the entanglements of human and more-than-human coexistence. Laitinen composes situations and installations that inquire into the porous interconnectedness of language, body, and matter within morphing ecosystems. In recent years, Laitinen has been working around questions of ecology, the notion of the extended mind, and processes of knowledge production. The works are often made with translucent and transparent materials in order to find ways to layer different epistemological systems.
Laitinen´s works have been recently shown in the 21st Biennale of Sydney, 7th Bucharest Biennale, Screen City Biennale 2019 (Stavanger), SADE LA (Los Angeles), Amado Art Space (Seoul), Moving Image New York, A Tale of a Tub (Rotterdam), Art Sonje Center (Seoul), Helsinki Contemporary, Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, EMMA – Espoo Museum of Modern Art, MOCA Shanghai & Cinemateca do MAM Rio de Janeiro. He was awarded the Finnish Art Academy Award in 2013. His works are represented in collections such as Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, EMMA Espoo Museum of Modern Art, HAM Helsinki Art Museum
