stories of dreamy, magical landscapes

Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen's art installations are not seen by audience, only photographed. Once the photograph is taken, Rune removes the installation, the only proof of it’s existence being these images… like waking up from a fantastical dream.


Rune Guneriussen's work as been photographed on location all over Norway. The objects are implemented mainly in scenes cast in appropriate landscapes, and here they are subject to a certain character carefully laying out a story. It is an approach to the balance between nature and culture, but also a multiple reading of stories. 

The photographs has been exhibited in House of Photography in Oslo, The National Annual Autumn Exhibition, Bremen in Germany, National Gallery of Bulgaria, Tallinn and more. 

As an artist, he believes strongly that art itself should be questioning and bewildering as opposed to patronizing 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. 

Love your dreamy art installations, Rune Guneriussen.
