Rebecca Gould

The Trojan Horse
Norwegian Church, SA1

Rebecca Gould brought a contemporary take of the mythical story of Helen of Troy, to the Norwegian Church through sculpture, film and music, portraying herself as Helen jetting out of Swansea on a fast boat to the musical accompaniment of Bonnie Tyler’s ‘Holding out for a hero’.

The film was presented in the belly of the Trojan horse that not only carried the story of the siege of Troy but also suggested a new type of siege, bringing glamour and wealth in its shell.
