James Geurts Seismic Field Special Event

Event status:

James Geurts Join 2016 Georges Mora Fellow, James Geurts as we celebrate the closing days of his exhibition Seismic Field at La Trobe Art Institute. During his LAI residency, Geurts initiated a dialogue between the LAI and the dynamics of the underlying earth, examining the relationship between geophysical forms and consciousness. The works are abstract measuring propositions, exploring these forces physically and symbolically. Geurts intervenes the processes of scanning and polaroid photography as site actions, letting weather, temperature, force and the pulse of the body disrupt the form and colour field, blurring the lines between geology and technological praxis. The works investigate seismic phenomena and cultural context, amplifying perceptual and physical thresholds of what is, literally, below our feet.
