“Yin and yang can be thought of as complementary (rather than opposing) forces that interact to form a dynamic system in which the whole is greater than the assembled parts.”
“Tableau” is a large-scale ceramic installation by Rose Eken shown at V1 gallery in Copenhagen. Through an extensive research period, Eken corresponded with contemporary artists around the world and received photos of their studios, working tables and tools. Based on the material Eken has created a large meta studio in ceramics – a fictional atelier – where every object refers back to a specific artist’s practice and working environment.
A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to stay in a traditional maltese house in Silema, a walking distance from the sea. Balconies often constitute the main component of facades. Made of wood, they are a bright touch of color on the honey-coloured old stone houses.
Silema bay offers a nice view over Valetta, the capital city of Malta, reachable by boat in 15 minutes.
A 40 minutes bus ride later, welcome to Mdina, a medieval walled town situated on a hill in the centre of the island.
And, although it’s packed with tourists, a boat tour to Comino offers you a stunning view over the blue lagoon’s crystal waters.
