I have a particular fondness for site specific installations – especially those that involve light sources. So, when I ran across the work of Rune Guneriussen recently my heart skipped a beat. Guneriussen straddles the line between sculpture and photography placing objects in the wilds of his native Norway.
He says, “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. It is an approach to the balance between nature and human culture, and all the sublevels of our own excistence. The work is made solely on site, and the photographs represents the reality of the installation itself.”
While his other works utilize telephones, books, chairs and globes, today I’m focusing on his lamps.
