Milan 2011 - Rolf Sachs
We love Rolf Sachs, and were looking forward to his installation at Milan 2011 more than most.
Clearly indebted to Edgar Allen Poe this time round, the disembodied heartbeat in the one room is joined in a kind of hideous chorus by a series of breathy sighs chasing around a darkened room next door - the sounds in this case emanating from caged pillows scattered around the floor.
Turn the sound up for this strangely eerie installation for Rolf Sachs - the reflective red pool pulsates in time with the heartbeat.
