Nan Goldin: Sirens

Marian Goodman Gallery presents its first exhibition with Nan Goldin, who joined the gallery in September 2018.

This major exhibition – the first solo presentation by the artist in London since the Whitechapel Art Gallery in 2002 – will present an important range of historical works together with three new video works exhibited for the first time.

Over the past year Goldin has been working on a significant new digital slideshow titled Memory Lost (2019), recounting a life lived through a lens of drug addiction. This captivating, beautiful and haunting journey unfolds through an assemblage of intimate and personal imagery to offer a poignant reflection on memory and the darkness of addiction. It is one of the most moving, personal and visually arresting narratives of Goldin’s career to date, and is accompanied by an emotionally charged new score commissioned from composer and instrumentalist Mica Levi. Documenting a life at once familiar and reframed, new archival imagery is cast to portray memory as lived and witnessed experience, yet altered and lost through the effects of drugs.
