James Geurts’ FLOODLINE is a conceptual site-specific work comprising three
oversized water-level sculptures positioned in a line that place the
audience underneath the water of a great historic flood. Arranged eight
metres apart an invisible horizon of the
flood level runs through the sculptures, generating an abstracted
mirror of the gauges on the illusory surface. FLOODLINE materialises a
phenomenon caused by refraction, where an underwater viewer sees
everything above the surface of the water as a distorted
reflection. The work gives form to a historically significant memory of
place. The ripples through the sculptures intensify as they reach the
ancient wetlands of Stamford Park.
