Rune Guneriussen, born 1977, is an artist working in the transition between installation and photography. As a conceptual artist he works site specific, primarily in nature.The work on objects started in 2005, and has been pho- tographed on locations all over Norway.
It is not as much photography as it is about sculpture and installation. The long oneman work on an largescale installation is a process triggering the artistic genom. This process involves the object, story, space and most important the time it is made within. He uses a large-format view camera. It is an approach to the balance between nature and human culture, and all the sublevels of our own existence. The work is made solely on site, and the photographs represents the reality of the installation itself.
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.
Discover on ARTSY the viewing room dedicated to Rune Guneriussen's highly anticipated project. Started in 2019, his new photographic project combines sculptures made out of wood, light, and large-format photography. It includes both colour and black/white images.
