The work of the artists Paul Barsch and Tilman Hornig returns recently banished sanitary furniture to the alpine meadows. At the Safier Sagenweg, between Safien Platz and Thalkirch, the artists have installed five silvered washbasins with an ironic nod to the bathtubs once repurposed for animal husbandry. The work is part of a series the two German artists began collaborating on in 2016 in which everyday sanitary furniture becomes the locus for various artistic interventions. In the version created for Art Safiental the sinks are equipped with flutes, which are also playable with care.

Ceramic washbasins, plastic recorders, silver chrome lacquer

Approx. 4 hours from Thalkirch along the Sagenwegs Safiental (until Safien Platz)
