Ordinary objects become extraordinary installations

Rune Guneriussen, born in 1977, in Norway. Education from the 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 site specific, primarily in nature.

The work on objects has started in 2005 and has been photographed 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 genome. 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.

As an artist he strongly believes 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 understand his art, but rather to indicate a path to understand a story.
