SAM 2013 Walk of Art 02 Rune Guneriussen Norwegian born Rune Guneriussen is a conceptual artist whose works cast everyday objects in seemingly untouched landscapes, where they constitute the only trace of a human presence. By placing inanimate things like lamps, globes, telephones and chairs in landscapes, the artist combines nature and manmade structures into whimsical installations. Normally Guneriussen is the only witness of his site-specific settings, leaving the audience with nothing but the photograph as tangible proof which documents the brevity of his works. The artist believes in art as a means to question and bewilder rather than to patronize and restrict. He does not want to dictate a way to understand his art, but indicates a path to understand a story. The Waldhaus Sils offers him the challenge to combine this lively tradition and the exceptional location in the midst of the surrounding nature.
