With Starry Eyes

I’ve been promising myself to finally start rereading The Mist of Avalon and I finally picked it up last week.  I just love this book, it makes you look at things around you like they are a little bit more enchanted.

Rune Guneriussen is an installation artist who makes fairy rings and other otherworldly displays out of lamps, books or furniture set in natural settings.  It’s so magical and whimsical and very much from the other side of looking glass.

ARTIST BIO

Rune Guneriussen, born 1977, in Norway. Education from Surrey Institute of Art & Design in England. Live and work in eastern Norway. 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 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 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.

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