James Geurts


Based in Melbourne, Geurts produces site-specific projects that draw out the dynamics of physical forces and geographic fields. Geurts’ practice locates ‘paradigms of measurement’ and ‘psychogeographic methods’ as they unfold over extended periods of field research. Through critical investigation Geurts focuses on conceptual lines in perception, and lines constructed within natural space, such as meridians, fault lines, tidal zones, flood lines, horizons, and orbitals.

Geurts’ work has been presented internationally by galleries including White Cube, London; GEMAK, The Hague; Centre for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv; Art Gallery of South Australia; La Chambre Blanche, Quebec; Aurora, Dallas, and the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne.

Geurts is represented by Greenaway Art Gallery, Adelaide/Berlin and Contemporary Art Society, London.
