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.
The installation of Rune Guneriussen is illuminated on the following evenings and the artist is present. On Saturday August 24, Tuesday August 27, Thursday August 29 August and Saturday 31 August, daily from 20.30 bis 22.30 clock. The Hotel Waldhaus Sils directs the guests on those evenings and provides the visitors with pocket lamps.
During the whole period of St. Moritz Art Masters you will also find an exposition of some works of the artist Rune Guneriussen at the Hotel Waldhaus.
