The Museum of Incest is British/Japanese artist Simon Fujiwara’s fictive recreation of the story of mankind’s evolution, and the objects are archived and displayed in a museum-like setting. These articles and artifacts mix the personal and the fictitious to create a myth of human origins and explicit sexual archeology that starts at the footsteps of man to Fujiwara’s present family background. Fujiwara has described his work as a "journey of personal discovery."
A guide to The Museum of Incest by Simon Fujiwara is available to accompany the exhibition with essays by Peter Murray, Director Crawford Art Gallery; Martin Clark, Artistic Director Tate St Ives; and Rachael Thomas, Senior Curator: Head of Exhibitions.
