NAN GOLDIN "MY ROOM, HALFWAY HOUSE" 1988/96

$0

Nan Goldin's interiors are an intriguing and unconventional way for the artist to reveal herself and share her journey.

In the 1980's she came to fame from documenting her social circle, characters often living on the margins of society, in New York City and beyond.

Goldin was the first to use the "slide show" format in a high-art setting and elevated the familiar snapshot into an art form.

A successor to Diane Arbus, her aesthetic and creative approach had a tremendous impact on both the medium and the art world. 

Goldin's influence is strongly manifested in the work of Wolfgang Tillmans and Ryan McGinley amongst others.

This work, shot in 1988 and printed in 1996, alludes to the domestic abuse Goldin endured in the 1980's.

In this photo, only the title reveals Goldin's pain and displacement - without it we could be looking at the guest room in a friend's attic.

Like the best of Goldin's work the space is both intimate and unchartered. 

(We especially like the Andy Warhol calendar on the wall depicting his "Skulls" series)

To see another example of Goldin's interiors take a look at "Honeymoon Suite, Nuremberger Eck, Berlin 1994" here.
