We have promised you a new update in which we would reveal the venue for the Astral Room project. We are more than happy to oblige and we will even take you for a short digital tour around the building.

Ladies and gentlemen, we would like to inform you that PHOS will be present at the Maltese – German Circle at Messina Palace in Valletta for this Notte Bianca 2011.

The Messina Palace is located at no 141 and 141A St. Christopher Street, in Valletta and was built by Fra Pietro La Rocca, who served as an Admiral of  The Order of St John. The building itself  is dated back to late XVII century and is in the very heart of the capital of Malta.

PHOS will take over two rooms on the second floor of the building. It is incredible experience once you enter the rooms. The large ceilings, painted in amazing fashion, double windows, balconies, fireplace, ornaments on the walls and marble floors, it’s like somebody turned the clock back and you suddenly found yourself in the Jane Austen era. Once we went to the second room through the golden painted door, we were pretty sure we would see Me Darcy…

Martin Galea de Giovanni and Mr Victor Sammut of Maltese – German Circle posed for a photo on one of the balconies, hiding behind the curtains and trying to see what was behind the corner (or perhaps were just hiding from a ceratin girl witha camera…)

The two rooms that we will occupy are connected via main hall, which we secretly call, The Star Hall. It is because the whole ceiling of the room is painted with stars. Just have a look for yourself:

If the photos are not enough, here’s a PLAN of the place

We wouldn’t be ourselves if we haven’t passed the bar on our way. Unfortunately, it was closed, but if you visit us during Notte Bianca, you will find it open. The Maiden sculpture inside is just breathtaking. Mal tried to photograph it from the above, so please excuse a weird angle and lack of quality on the photo.

We don’t have to tell you how trilled we are to be able to useMessinaPalaceas our venue. There is more to come. We will present our works soon enough on the blog. Also printing and framing is underway and there are guest books to be decorated and press packs to be sent. So much work, so little time, but we are having a ball.

We would also like to remind you that Rita and Mal will be taking part in the Car Free Day in Birkirkara on September 18th (Sunday). We will have a bunch of new cat artworks. It is time to actually reveal two more works.
