The traditional form of an Alpine rake (Rastè, in Romansh) is celebrated in this nostalgic piece. Hand-carved in slate and stripped of its primary function, it is given a new sculptural and emotional dimension.
‘rastè’ forms part of the Herzschuss (shot to the heart) exhibition in the Engadin (Switzerland) where Sachs celebrates his close connection to the customs, materials and traditional furniture of his childhood landscape.
The specially created works included furniture, photography and sculpture, offering an immersive, multi-sensory way of experiencing the Engadin valley’s varied and intriguing traditions.
