Steve Williams & David Moynihan 'Wolpertinger' (November 2010)

WOLPERTINGER - hauntological music and spectral delights - found sounds and the works of experimental musicians were used to compose “sound paintings”. These were played with projections of eerie moving images taken from Berlin and cinema. The night also included two performance pieces – a séance and a swansong, and an attempted séance to rid Centrum, a former brothel, of the spell of sex.

Nicole Ullrich (October 2010)

German artist Nicoll Ullrich’s temporary installations expose the often invisible space where art work is made, using found materials, wood, glass, carpet and paper and focusing on the setting around art - the artist’s studio; the work desk; ideas pinned to walls; the leftovers of discarded choices. During her Centrum residency/exhibition at Centrum she used, as her starting point, a found image of a German artist’s studio. The resulting work was reviewed by This Is Tommorrow here. The Finissage included a talk with the artist Hannah Kruse, who is Co-Director of Goldrausch.
