  • Catalogue Essay

    These particular semi-deserts are from Marfa, Texas. Anyone with some knowledge of modern art knows that Marfa was the half-abandoned town in the desert where Donald Judd finally found a proper playground for his minimalist art of ever-increasing scale. Marfa is today a huge monument to Judd, attracting tourists and artists from all over the world to this place in the middle of nowhere, close to the Mexican border. Judd was considered a minimalist; his art, though, was never minimal. Not in aspiration, nor scale, and certainly not in its demands for space. Marko Vuokola is for sure minimal, but not a minimalist.
