Since 2005 the artist has explored the relationship between installation and pho-tography.
He takes full advantage of the picturesque and untouched nature of his home country Norway, in which he places man-made objects to create ethereal photographs.
Therefore with his projects he assembles site-specific sculptures and installations creating the most enchanting of worlds, photographs them and takes them apart afterwards leaving no trace behind – as a nod to a more delicate approach. “This process involves the object, story, space and most important the time it is made within. It is an approach to the balance between nature and human culture, and all the sublevels of our own existence”, the artist states.
Hence, these most ordinary every-day items such as electric lamps, books, chairs, are seemingly the only indication of human presence.
His photographic works invite the viewer to contemplate the results of the interaction between man and nature, as a metaphoric way to reflect our place in the passage of time.
As an artist, Rune Guneriussen strongly believes that art itself should be questioning and bewildering. He does not want to dictate a way to understand his art, but rather indicate a path to immerse oneself in a narrative dimension.
