Carefully toeing the line between installation and photography, Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen meticulously photographs ordinary, household items in extraordinary environments. His staged photos, taken throughout the Norwegian countryside, capture dense enchanted forests and spare winter wonderlands populated with such objects as chairs, books, lamps, oh, and more lamps (did we mention he uses a lot of lamps?).
Hardly any of Guneriussen's scenes continue to exist as live installations, but you can catch his photographs in two places this fall. Rheingalerie Bonn, in Bonn, Germany, is currently exhibiting the artist's work through November 10. Guneriussen will also be a part of a group show this month at Bugno Art Gallery in Venice, Italy.
