Rune Egenes
Norwegian, b. 1985
Follow

The photographs of Rune Egenes explore the dual processes of decay and reinvention. In the tradition of typological photography established by Bernd and Hilla Becher, Egenes builds series that explore the textures and idiosyncrasies of everyday objects and spaces, often with a darkly humorous edge. He focuses on subjects in states of transition, in particular. For his “Overhaul” series, Egenes documented an abandoned wine cellar that locals have transformed into a paintball arena. The paint-splattered space recalls a bunker with a Technicolor twist. For his “Wisdom” series, Egenes made high-definition portraits of pulled wisdom teeth, engaging the connection between beauty and discomfort.
