Annie Goliath is a multiple award-winning, interdisciplinary artist and researcher that lives and works between Hastings and London. She works across an array of expanded practices including moving image, performance, installation, sound and socially engaged art. Her practice explores the complex relationship between the human and more-than-human world. She often places the past, present, and imaginary futures in dialogue with each other using speculative fiction. Her practice aims to examine the interrelations between gender, ecology, memory and consciousness. 
Goliath is studying a Creative and Critical Practice PhD at the University of Sussex and in 2019, she completed her MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London. In 2023, she was awarded the Beginnings Funding to produce an artist's film and to host/present at a symposium as part of the Sussex Festival of Ideas 2024. In 2023, she was awarded the CHASE Justice Climate Network Small Grants Award for her project Embodied Listening. In 2022, she was awarded the Arts Council National Lottery Grant for the 18-month project One World. In 2021, her artist’s film 'Attempts to Devour Time' won the 1st Place Award and the PENCO Award at the II International Video Performance Competition LPG 2021 and was featured in the WomenCinemakers Biennial. In 2017, she was awarded Arts Council England Grants for the Arts for the 18-month project Recycle, Rewind and Animate and she co-founded AGBA Interlink in collaboration with the ethnic minority composer, animator, designer and educator Black Astronaut.
