Surrealist Object Installations by Rune Guneriussen

Wonderful surrealist art installations by Rune Guneriussen in his native Norway.

Like a bizarro-twist on Andy GoldsworthyRune Guneriussen takes manmade lamps and other objects, and creates surreal and elaborate installations with them, in the forests and landscapes of his home of Norway.  The seemingly random and strange installations belie the effort and patience of assembling these art pieces. Imagine walking in the forest and coming upon a flock of lit desk lamps – it’d be a magical and surreal experience. We love the way the light plays with the scene, creating warm, inviting spaces in what otherwise are cold and empty places. Really fascinating work, via Colossal:

We’d love to know the process of his work, and the laborious task of setting up and lighting these far-flung installations.

In some of his installations, the objects appear to be squaring-off, with personalities all their own.

A very festive installation in the snow with ornate lamps climbing the tree.
