James Geurts produces site and time-specific projects which focus on the dynamics of physical forces and fields, and the influence these have on our perception. Geurts’ practice locate ‘paradigms of measurement’ and ‘psychogeographic methods’ as they have unfolded over extended periods of field research. He explores the expression of these relations in geographic and conceptual forms, how we fathom a tide, an axis of a rotating earth, or the phenomenon of a horizon. Geurts explores these features using processes ranging from public art, sculpture, drawing, installation, video, photography and living monochromes.
James is currently developing two public artworks in collaboration with Carbon Arts: Empire of Dirt and Void of a River.
