“Beuys’ Acorns” is an installation by artists Ackroyd & Harvey made of 100 oak trees, directly inspired by the artist and co-founder of the German Green party Joseph Beuys. The two artists collected acorns from Beuys original installation “7000 oaks”, set in Kassel, Germany. At Tate Modern’s South Terrace, the two have brought some of the now-grown trees creating a living sculpture to rethink our connection with nature. The installation lies exactly above Beuys’s work “The End of the Twentieth Century”, installed in the Tanks below.
