The Open Gallery at Milu Hotel is an omnipresent experience from the moment the doors of the hotel swing open, continues throughout the staircases and the guests floors and leads all the way through the Library, transforming the hotel into a living and evolving art collection. The artworks on display at Milu Hotel are selected from a curated collection of works that decorates each space. The rotating exhibition space will feature international artists working within various mediums such as sculpture, space installation, drawing, video and photography, and are available for purchase by hotel guests and visitors to the property.
This massive yet delicate work is a fast and floating sketch capturing a movement suspended in mid-air. The installation depicts a flock of yarn birds attempting to ascend, yet tied down, unable to progress. A flock taking flight is an inspiring spectacle that harbors freedom and hope.

"Hourglass" is part of a series of video works that engage in the ruthless race after a place and recognition. In the piece, a pile of chairs are trapped in the upper space of an hourglass and then fall like sand. Reminiscent of the game “musical chairs” in which the participant struggles for space while time is running out.

Self taught illustrator and paper artist, working under the name "Yanshuf". Translates people's dreams and nightmares to paper and ink.
Carmel’s work is based on a method of work constructed of numerous folded papers erecting from a wooden plate. Originating in the feminist discourse of the late 20th century, her work responds to traditions of female labor and crafts. Strongly connected to her basic material of paper, she questions the emotional response the material evokes and its contemporary value in an age of digitally archived knowledge.
Wandering around as a cat in empty spaces. The work exists in an artificial time and space, in which connections are associative.
Photography has the power to connect people, bringing to light common positive feelings that need no translation.

Inspired by Pop culture, the unsettling sense of constant rushing as if time is fast forwarded, a feeling that is typical of the 21st century. Surrounded by hectic, intoxicating flickering of screens - TV, smart phones, tablets - “women under the influence” showered by images from retail, lifestyle, sports events, and glamour. These images offer an illusion of eternal youth alongside a deep sense of temporal existence.
Shani's gaze focuses on the readymade, leftovers, things that had different function in the past and found their way to her studio and into her work.
When I started painting the city around me I saw so much decrepitude that it seemed the challenge would overtake me. I didn't think I would be able to deal with what I saw. Slowly and meticulously as I painted my surroundings I came to love them, to appreciate the old and dilapidated buildings, as if to pardon their age and remember their long ago youth. Painted on simple cardboard I broke off pieces and allowed the frayed borders to stand proudly by.
Examines the urban aesthetics, the encounter between the built and the natural, while juxtaposing the interior and the exterior, the realistic and the abstract.
