Dedicated to Nan Goldin’s activist group P.A.I.N (Prescription Addiction Intervention Now), Memory Lost recounts a life lived through a lens of drug addiction. The captivating, beautiful and haunting journey of the video unfolds through an assemblage of intimate and personal imagery to offer a poignant reflection on memory and the darkness of addiction. The images within the video are accompanied by an emotionally charged score from composer and instrumentalist Mica Levi, with additional music by CJ Calderwood and Soundwalk Collective. This score is found on the A-Side of this vinyl release. The additional element that Goldin uses for the first time are the recorded voices from Goldin’s answering machine tapes from the 80s and from interviews done specifically for the piece of her friends talking about their experience with drugs.
Sirens is the first work by Goldin made entirely from found footage. The single-channel video includes scenes from thirty of her favorite films and is accompanied by Mica Levi’s score which is hosted on the B side of this vinyl. It echoes the enchanting call of the Sirens from Greek mythology, who lured sailors to their untimely deaths on rocky shores, this hypnotic work entrances the viewer into the seduction and euphoria of being high.
