'In the shimmering heat
on the billowing field
a small white point
moves towards you...'
A still from an early film made in 1970 about the 'Einhorn' ('Unicorn') performance, in which a woman walks through the countryside for 12 hours with the 'Unicorn’ object on her head. It demonstrates Rebecca Horn's interest in the poetical/mythological figures thematized in her performances, and also points to the sculptural aspect of the body extensions collectively presented in the films 'Performances I’, 1972, and ‘Performances II’, 1973.
