  7. Nicolas Moulin, Leverhulme Artist in Residence:Exhibition at Site Gallery, June – Aug 2009

  8. Press coverage of Nicolas Moulin’s exhibition at Site Gallery • ‘It’s rare that an artist’s brief association with a city will tell you anything of note about the city itself, but Nicolas Moulin’s three-month residency at the University of Sheffield appears to be an exception. Moulin’s images of paranoid cities and impossible industrial structures demonstrate a hard surrealism entirely appropriate to Sheffield, a city that – though it seems rather ashamed of the fact – has the finest Modernist architecture of any English city outside of London.’ (Owen Hatherley, Frieze, July 2009)

  9. Press coverage of Nicolas Moulin’s exhibition at Site Gallery • ‘you should go and see the Nicolas Moulin show at the Site Gallery in Sheffield if you get a chance - the photos and the film are brilliant: menacing catastrophes of post-apocalyptic architecture-gone-wrong, with the ambivalence of twentieth-century politics in the background…’ (Cinestatic / Infinite Thought, July 2009)
