NAN GOLDIN "HOTEL ROOM, ZURICH" 1994
Nan Goldin's interiors are an intriguing and unconventional way for the artist to reveal herself and share her journey.
This photograph, which feels tranquil and elegant, is an interesting contrast to another one of Goldin's interiors "My Room in Halfway House, Belmont Ma."
Both works were shot in 1988 and printed in 1996.
Do these interiors reveal the contrast and progress of Goldin's career and personal stability? In one image she is taking refuge in attic-like room, the later can we assume she is staying in a fine European hotel? Are the open window and sunlight symbols for a feeling of optimism in her future?
This ambiguity and intimacy is a key motif in her oeuvre.
And although both rooms are unpopulated, emotions can remain just as present.
