MORE INFORMATION:


The Sacrificial Goat series, Zajac’s most succesful, won him international acclaim. Zajac said of this series: “In the goats the concept of the stake is my own. The hard object threatening the soft belly of the animal, which seems particulary vulnerable in a goat, is my way of trying to provoke a feeling of urgency and alarm. The very point of this conception is that these animal forms are not impaled — that death is still imminent. If they were dead, the drama would be over.”
