FLOODLINE

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.
