Memory 1: Susannah’s Ark
“Reconfigured Remembrances, Susannah’s Ark (2017) sees protagonist Susannah awake with amnesia to find that the only thing she can remember is her name. Susannah soon discovers that she can somehow unlock her missing memories, which is contained within the molecules of her tears. She sets sail in an ark in search of her missing memories and due to her extraordinary ability – is able to also listen to the ocean’s mixed messages – accumulated over eons. Placing the past, present and future in dialogue with each other, Goliath explores environmental concerns juxtaposed against notions of consciousness and memory. To create this multifaceted video experience, the artist has appropriated archival footage of an exhibition in search of Noah’s Ark (1947) and a 1950s advertisement for Band-Aid Adhesive Bandages (a metaphor for the countless wounds inflicted during the proposed epoch of the Anthropocene), alongside original collages, her own singing, and a short extract from the film Noah. (2014)” - Sarah Holdaway (curator for the exhibition False Memories in 2020)
