Norwegian conceptual artist Rune Guneriussen creates whimsical worlds that highlight the natural beauty of his chosen locales. Integrating everyday, man-made objects into his work, Guneriussen assembles temporary, site-specific sculptures that he photographs using a analog plate camera.
It can take days before he finds the perfect secluded location. Items are hauled there by foot and arranged to sit within the perfect balance of light, illuminated by what Guneriussen refers to as the ‘blue hour’. Once the image is taken, he quickly dismantles the work, leaving no trace of it behind.
“As an artist he believes strongly that art itself should be questioning and bewildering as opposed to patronizing and restricting…he does not want to dictate a way to the understanding of his art, but rather indicate a path to understanding a story,” Guneriussen states in the third person on his website.
