Time Savers has announced a new regular section dedicated to Art in Barcelona, in all of its different expressions and media. For the premiere, the concierge service selected Anka Manshusen and her exhibition of works evoking the spirit of Barcelona’s “Secret Garden.”
Anka’s extreme sensability captivates the viewer instantly. She has successfully created her own and unmistakable universe in each of her works. Anka, methodical in her execution, uses her work as a vehicle of expression and communication.
The result is a sequence of clear messages which appeal directly to the viewer’s senses – whether he is an admirer or a critic. Able to halt existing movement or to create some where previously there was none, Anka’s work points straight to memories, to the reminiscence of past images as well as the projection to our future space/time. The past educates us with our senses for what the futures hold s through our recollections. But above all Anka celebrates life, the most important thing we enjoy and which continuously enthralls us.
Her work will be showcased in the Galería Carlos Roldós until April 15 in Palma de Mallorca. Photo of Sagrada Familia: www.flickr.com/photos/jurvetson/992509245.
Tradition, architecture and above all haute cuisine come together in this unique and exclusive place, the restaurant Casa Calvet. The moment one arrives, still unaware of the experience the dishes constitute, the space immediately captivates one’s gaze. Something that is hardly surprising given that the building was designed by none other than Gaudí for the Calvet family, who had made their fortune in the textile industry.
The restaurant is located in what used to be the offices and workplace. With its high roofs, typical white mural tiles decorated with turn of the century photographs and its antique furniture, Casa Calvet lets us embark on a time travel to another period.
But the real experience are its dishes. Under the direction of Miguel Alija in the kitchen, a perfect equilibrium between traditional Mediterranean cooking, avant-garde cuisine and a hint of Asian influence is created and maintained. The premium quality of the products used and their fusion in a fitting composition of dishes make up a careful balanced menu. Elaborated dishes without superfluous artifice give the required importance to the main ingredient. As a result, one is able to appreciate it much more and that is one is grateful for.
It is a perfect choice for any occasion. A pick in which dining out becomes an experience that brings together the best of Catalan cuisine with the work of Gaudí. Upon leaving the Barcelona restaurant, one will have a strange sensation, one that is surprising and uncommon: knowing with certainty that you will be back soon.
