Antti Laitinen


Tree String Trio is an installation made of found tree pieces. The three hanging forms are similar to musical instruments that play a gentle sound. The artist often uses wood that grows or is found from his surroundings in the Finnish countryside, making this an easy material to manipulate with loads of possibilities.

Antti Laitinen (b. 1975) lives and works in Somero, Finland. He 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.
