Arts Reverie 12/10/06

Posted by Lionel Dean on 12th October 2006

Arts Reverie is as far away from the tourist experience as can be imagined. Tucked away up winding back alleys in a busy Pol (traditional walled community) This three storey 19th Century colonial style building, provides an inspiring light and airy space. It is right in the heart of things surrounded on all sides by the day to day life of the community, where the boundaries between the public, private, work, and family blur in a way I have not experienced before. It is a surreal experience to witness cows meandering past the window.

Attention to detail - maybe there should be a house tradition of polishing these for luck like the brass bull of Torino
