As part of the touring exhibition across the UK, the London-based artist brings his Anglo-Scottish and Ghanian ancestry—by way of a Rastafarian upbringing—to rituals of healing for generational trauma. The immersive exhibition crosses film, photography, sound and sculpture, and is born from a lengthy process that symbolises collective healing and reflection.
The centrepiece of the show is a hand-knotted garment made of human hair that has been intricately designed by Golding, in collaboration with the Shepperton Wig Company and hair artist Kevin Fortune using a pattern that blends references from Afro hair styles to the body art of ancient Britons. The show is described as “an invocation for us to acknowledge the importance of understanding our emotional past and to establish a more equitable future.”
