Nicolas Moulin on Brutalist British Archtecture

Commissioned by Site Gallery, the neon structure, Blanklümderlicht and large photo installation, Wenluderwind, will be complemented by Moulin’s earlier video Nachdatch, a disorientating computer generated projection showing the darkened interior of a blockhaus or bunker, perforated by shafts of constantly shifting light and shadow. With references to Sheffield’s cityscape, the raw and uncompromising Beton Brut or brutalist style, epitomized by Park Hill flats, the Moore Street sub-station and the concrete overpasses and underpasses that link and divide the city, Moulin creates an imagined landscape for the 21st century.
