‘Joseph Beuys in Scotland' A film by Rory McEwen
Rarely seen film documentation of Joseph Beuys performing an action, Joseph Beuys in Scotland, 1970. Sharing a love of Scottish folklore and storytelling, McEwen accompanied Richard Demario and Beuys to Rannoch Moor and captured the journey on his cine camera. Weather plays an important role in their journey – heavy rains make way for clear blue skies when the two artists arrive at their destination. In the final moments of the film, Beuys sculpts a symbolic shape from gelatine and holds it aloft towards the blazing sunlight. Squeezing the piece repeatedly, the sculpture mimics a pulsing heart.
