Marcorossi artecontemporanea is pleased to present, after 4 years, in the three offices of Milan, Verona and Turin, the solo exhibition of the Norwegian photographer Rune Guneriussen, entitled Lights go out, which creates fascinating temporary installations in the Norwegian nature subject of his ethereal photographic images . His works are created in situ, in total solitude and reflection, in the context of unusual and wild landscapes. Immersed in uncontaminated nature, lamps, books, chairs and telephones, and in his latest cycle of works, luminous sculptures created by him lose their connotation of artifact and come alive until they blend in with the immutable elements of the landscape. Similarly, the surrounding environment is also transformed from natural to fairytale.

The natural context, in fact, plays a double role: it is configured at the same time as the protagonist and frame of the installations. In the rarefied silence of Norwegian nature, Guneriussen arranges lamps, books, telephones, chairs, which metaphorically resonate as if amplified by an echo, as the artist explains. The process ends with the photographic shot of the installation, which is done in analog, without digital retouching in post production. The final effect is a fascinating combination of nature and objects, where the latter dominate the scene, become immutable like the elements of the surrounding nature, transform the landscape but at the same time respect it
