Munch Mani-Cure (2022)
This commission uses a selection of artworks from MUNCH’s own collection as its starting point. In Bella Rune’s Munch Mani-Cure app, mobile phones and Augmented Reality are used to summon up the many hands which have come into contact with Edvard Munch’s paintings over the years. Art dealers, curators, thieves, and the artist himself have all handled the artworks in the past. Hold your phone up to selected works on floor 4 (Infinite) and floor 6 (Monumental) and view them with the expanded and experimental frames Rune has placed around the pictures.
A commission for The Machine is Us.
