Biography
Based in Melbourne, Geurts completed his Masters of Art at RMIT Melbourne in 2009 and post graduate research at Vrije Academie, GEMAK The Hague 2011. Geurts’ produces site and time-specific projects that locate paradigms of measurement, focusing on physical forces and fields and the influence these have on perception. He draws out these relations in geographic and conceptual forms that are layered within the sites of research. Geurts explores these features using processes ranging from public art, sculpture, drawing, installation, video, photography and living monochromes. 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.
