A proposal for a national holiday, ‘Beuys day’.On the anniversary of Joseph Beuys birthday a single female wolf will be chosen from a pack that has been released on Rannoch Moor.
The wolf is secured in a cage and brought to Edinburgh. The floor of the cage is a blackboard covered with bracken and moorland grasses.
On the morning of ‘Beuys day’, at precisely 11 a.m., the wolf is delivered to the Scottish parliament. The cage is placed in the centre of the debating chamber.
Every MSP is present. The Queen and First minister and the Prime Minister of Great Britain are present.
Between them sits an empty chair, upon which Beuys famous hat is placed. The Chairman of the Scottish Arts Council stands behind this chair in an attitude of solemn contemplation.
Jimmy Boyle is in the public gallery.
Following a single note sounded on the Caprington Horn, Richard Demarco steps forward. With a gleam in his eye, he utters a single word, “Joseph”, and the wolf is released.
