SAM St.Moritz Art Masters 2012 Rolf Sachs HERZSCHUSS Vernissage 28. August 2012 Rolf Sachs’ Herzschuss (‘Shot through the Heart’) is an exhibition of furniture, objects, installations, photography and sculpture, inspired by the spirit and materials of the Alpine and Engadine regions. Sachs investigates traditional values and unique cultural peculiarities from his typically humorous and inquisitive perspective, offering a fresh, bold and personal approach.The exhibition will also showcase editionprints from the collaborative photographic project with his wife Maryam Sachs. The title (of the exhibition) refers to the creation process of one particular installation piece but also emphasises Sachs’ close connection to the Bündnerland. By approaching the subject matter with a sensitivity and playfulness, Sachs is shining a spotlight on some varied and fascinating local traditions. Viewing these objects out of their everyday environment, the viewer is invited to take part in an immersive, multi-sensory experience and to encounter the form, materials and functions of these objects in a completely different context.
