GOOD MORNING!
MISTER WILLIAMS

Inspired by a found photo album from 1912, Golden retraces the history of a group of choirboys on a trip to Abergele, bringing together several layers of enigmatic narrative.

Prince Madoc, the Welsh king, is said to have sailed from North Wales to America in 1170, discovering it centuries before Columbus. Numerous sightings of his phantom ship off the coast of Abergele serve as a ghostly reminder of his erasure from history.

Good Morning! Mister Williams brings this story and location back to life by juxtaposing an ancient myth and mystery with one more modern. The title, like the images of the exhibition, is appropriated from an old photograph album from the early twentieth century. All original meaning is long lost.
