Exhibition // Nan Goldin – Memory Lost

In the exhibition with selected works from Louisiana’s collection, you’ll find the new acquisition: 'Memory Lost' by Nan Goldin. The work is an approx 24 minute long digital slide show, which has already been heralded as a masterpiece in Goldin's career. The work - which is both intimate, poetic, captivating and heartbreaking - revolves around abuse, friendship, love, deprivation and loss. It is jointly owned by the Louisiana and Moderna Museet, Stockholm.

‘Memory Lost’ (2019-21) is composed of images and footage from Goldin’s extensive archive. The artist has battled with addicition and came close to dying a few years ago as a result of her addiction to the painkiller OxyContin. Since then, she has been at the forefront of the fight against the Sackler family, the producers of this drug, which in large part has caused the current, devastating opioid epidemic in the United States. Goldin and her activist group P.A.I.N. have been portrayed in the award-winning documentary ‘All the Beauty and the Bloodshed’, which recently was nominated to an Oscar.
