The Scapegoat

The Scapegoat is a work of fictional ethnography, in the form of folk-tale/prose, that personifies the modern phenomenon of the scapegoat. Borrowing elements from a wide range of religious practices and stories, primarily the idea of passing sin on to animals, objects and other people, the text explores man’s historical relationship to blame. 

 

The tale is displayed as a triptych; as three framed drawings, each visually representing certain stanzas from the text. The images also act as fictional records for the imagined story. In addition, the piece will be accompanied by a small shrine, made up of elements that are featured in the story.
