Antti Laitinen

21 June 2005 - 26 June 2005

Finnish artist Antti Laitinen is undertook a 3 month residency at BALTIC, ending on 10 July 2005.

Laitinen’s work draws on environmental art, land art and performance art. By scanning a self portrait onto a map he creates a route to follow. He orienteers along the outline of his image, allowing for the limitations set by nature or construction, and later creates an image of a new environment using GPS (Global Positioning Systems) technology.

Laitinen developed this body of work by navigating the streets of Tyneside and the Northumbrian countryside. These new works featured in his Level 1 exhibition.

This residency was organised in partnership with FRAME (Finnish Fund for Art Exchange).
