Timo Aho (b. 1980, Finland) works with site-specific installation, sculpture and intervention. In his work, he uses a wide range of materials and media, often including ephemeral elements such as light and air. His artistic practice investigates our environment through societal structures and belief systems. Examining the fine line between reality and fiction, Aho disentangles these topics with subtle gestures.

Aho has exhibited internationally since 2014. His recent exhibitions include: Untitled, Art Miami 2019, Sandstorm – Yyteri 2019, Atelierhaus – Aachen 2020, Taigh Chearsabhagh art centre – North Uist 2018, Exhibition Laboratory – Helsinki 2019, Tuin Zuidas – Amsterdam 2018, and The Royal Scottish Academy – Edinburgh 2017

Aho graduated in 2016 from The Glasgow School of Art, where he studied sculpture and environmental art. He is completing his MFA studies at The Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki, where he currently lives and works.
