Tuomas A. Laitinen’s Haemocyanin (2019) will be screened in the programme “Queer Ecology” on Wednesday, June 23, in Kukoon im Park, Bremen, Germany. The screening is curated and presented by Christine Rüffert.
Haemocyanin is based on a strand of artworks and research on ecological change, consciousness, and mythologies via octopuses. Since 2016, this process has resulted to 12 glass objects made for octopuses. In Haemocyanin, the octopus is seen in interaction with the glass object.
Tuomas Aleksander Laitinen’s current work and research focuses on the entanglements of human and non-human coexistence. Laitinen constructs situations and installations that are exploring the porous interconnectedness of language, body, and matter within morphing ecosystems. Laitinen’s works have been recently shown in the 21st Biennale of Sydney, 7th Bucharest Biennale, SADE LA (Los Angeles), Amado Art Space (Seoul), Moving Image New York, 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.
