Tamara Marbl Joka is an Oslo-based artist and current master’s student at Oslo National Academy of the Arts. She was born in 1968 in Sarajevo, which was a part of The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia at the time. Following the dissolution of the state in 1992, she immigrated to Norway. She consequently completed her formal training as a lecturer of Arts and Crafts at the University of South-Eastern Norway. She has exhibited in many group exhibitions and two solo exhibitions in the Nordic region. In 2007, the county municipality of Telemark purchased her work for their permanent collection.


Having witnessed an earthquake, a war and a long migration process, I channel these experiences into my art by creating concrete and metal objects based on my experiences. Digging through my memory, I try to recognize fragments of the past. Each piece I create is simultaneously an extension of my early life. In my work, I investigate the contrasts linked to tactility and texture and I study the challenges of working within the medium.
