Man Made Objects Photographed In Nature
Rune Guneriussen was born 1977, in Norway. He was educated at Surrey Institute of Art & Design in England. He lives and works in eastern Norway. He is an artist working in the transition between installation and photography. As a conceptual artist he works primarily in nature, but also with more man made structures. The isolation of objects are turned into installations, most of these are not seen by an audience, but only photographed.
The work on objects such as tables, lamps and chairs started in 2005, and has been photographed on location all over Norway. The objects are implemented mainly in scenes cast in appropriate landscapes, and here they are subject to a certain character carefully laid out in a story. His works also includes live installations open to an audience. Recently he exhibited at the Nuit Blanche 2009 in Paris with the installation “Don´t leave the lights on”, but also with “An electric field” as his most extensive project done in Norway.
As an artist he believes strongly that art itself should be questioning and bewildering as opposed to patronising and restricting. As opposed to the current fashion he does not want to dictate a way to the understanding of his art, but rather indicate a path to understanding a story.
