MARKO VUOKOLA is an artist who is particularly interested in issues of seeing, perception, knowledge and time. During his career, he has created a wide range of works from physical installations to pieces employing light and sound, drawings, paintings, folded paper works, objects, photographs and video pieces. Time is the common denominator of all these mutually different pieces and ensembles of works: the surprising nature of time as endless, relative and precisely measurable. The meaning of time for perceiving and understanding action and change. The objective nature of time and the subjective nature of human time. In his works Vuokola captures the fleeting microsecond inaccessible to our senses.
Marko Vuokola (b. 1967, Toijala) lives and works in Helsinki. His numerous solo and group exhibitions include venues such as Amos Rex, Helsinki; Tempelhof Airport, Berlin; Rovaniemi Art Museum; Serlachius Museum, Mänttä; Trondheim Kunstmuseum; and Galerie 21, Malmö. His works are included in numerous private and public collections, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, the Swanljung Collection, Malmö Art Museum, Saastamoinen Foundation Collection, Rovaniemi Art Museum, and EMMA Espoo Museum of Modern Art. Vuokola has created several public works in Finland.
