Joshua Goode’s installation and archaeological performance at The MAC misinterprets and manipulates history and mythology, preserving the artist’s own memories of childhood, the achievements of major historical figures, and exposing the malleability of our past, present and future. 

Inspired by amateur archeologists such as Heinrich Schliemann who discovered Troy and by past elaborate hoaxes like that of the Piltdown Man, Goode’s “discoveries” verify his invented civilization. The archaeological performance and installation begin with extensive historical research, and result in absurdly comical discoveries and false claims, which engage the history of the region.
