Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen explores a fascinating balance of human’s interaction with nature in his outdoor installations of electric lamps, stacked books, chairs, and phones that appear to have gathered in small herds and swarms as if leftover weeds from human life’s sprouting.

Guneriussen’s website has nearly two dozen new photos of amazing and fascinating installation works, scattered throughout Norway, over the past three years, and has a show at Rheingalerie Bonn Gallery which runs through November 10.

Guneriussen is an artist who likes to work in the gray area between powerful and crazy installations and the photographic and creative documentation of the powerful sights. His works are often site specific, primarily in nature. The work on objects 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 large scale installation is a process triggering the artistic genom. 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 sub-levels 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. Art that should shatter reality, not reflect it like a mirror. He does not want to dictate any kind of understanding or insight for his viewers, yet his work inherently evokes curiosity and an open-ended pathway to a story that has yet to be written. It’s up to the viewer to find the story.
