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.
Geurts established the ongoing conceptual project Embassy for Water in 2011, which helped win the bid for the 2018 European Capital for Culture in Leeuwarden, Netherlands. Geurts has exhibited his projects in galleries including: White Cube, London; GEMAK, Den Haag Netherlands; Centre for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv Israel; Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; La Chambre Blanche, Quebec; and the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.
