rolf sachs ammann gallery

A purist by education as well as by nature, Rolf Sachs (b.1955) is inspired by the work of Malevich, De Stijl, Donald Judd, Joseph Beuys and works from the Surrealist movement. Son of a German industrialist father and French mother, he was heavily influenced by the art that surrounded him as a boy growing up in Switzerland. Rolf Sachs‘ deep interest in finding ‘the new’ in art and design led him to produce one-off design pieces in the early 1990s. In 1994 he set up Rolf Sachs Fun c‘tion, a London based studio which has now become a creative laboratory brimming with ideas, prototypes and creations. Together with his team he fuses design with the arts. Sachs is a member of the Board of Trustees for the London Design Museum, the Tate Modern International Council, and the Sotheby’s International Advisory Board. Rolf Sachs‘ work is manifest as art, design, objects, photography, spaces and visual medium, all of which are approached with his playful sense of humour. The essence of his work encourages human interaction, with emotional and sensory reactions. Sachs is forever curious and is renowned for surprising his audiences as well as questioning preconceptions.

Rolf Sachs explains: „My objects are not supposed to be provocative but they will, on occasion, trigger very personal and individual emotions in different people.“ Rolf Sachs has had a number of one-man and group exhibitions in the USA, Germany, Italy, Austria and the United Kingdom. In 2014, his ,,Typisch Deutsch?” solo exhibition at the Museum für Angewandte Kunst, (MAKK) Cologne addressed the stereotypes and characteristics of German behaviour and mentality. Result of the collaboration of the museum and ammann gallery was beside the successful solo exhibition the publication of the catalogue “Rolf Sachs. Typisch Deutsch?”.

rolf sachs ammann gallery

In his ‘Camera in Motion Series’, the conceptional artist explores the unexpected through the lenses of his camera. Depicting the breathtaking landscape of the Swiss Alps from a passenger’s viewpoint on the Albula-Bernina Bahn, Sachs creates unique, abstract landscapes formed by the passing scenery combined with the motion of the train and natural lighting. Accompanying these works, Sachs released in 2016 the new book ‘Camera in Motion – From Chur to Tirano’ (published by Kehrer Verlag), which explore this body of work in depth.

ammann//gallery has been working continuously with Rolf Sachs since 1994 and is showing his work in solo exhibitions in the gallery as well as at the most important fairs of design and art worldwide.
