Art has taken over the Flattered Apartments in Porto. The unique concept has received artworks and installations by Portuguese artists Duarte Amaral Netto, ±MAISMENOS±, Paulo Arraiano, Pedro Matos and Gonçalo Mar. These will be the resident artists at Flattered Apartments in Porto for the next two years.
Flattered is a Portuguese project offering vacation rental apartments in Porto, Lisbon and Tomar. There are five units in Porto, located right in the seafront, in a restored historical building. The interior design of all of them bears the signature of architect José Carlos Cruz.
For 2015 a broader and more ambitious approach to Art has been drafted and a new project was born under the name of Flattered By. The challenge can be summed to a simple formula. One apartment, one artist, one installation in one piece.
These apartments were designed to please the most demanding guests and to be unique between each other. Every room is a piece within itself and this showcase plays a major role in achieving this goal. It’s the right amount of art among the exclusiveness and quality that is Flattered’s everyday business.
The first round of art works was installed between March the 2nd - 6th under the form of an “artist-in-residence” model. Each unit worked as a white room for a specific artist. Duarte Amaral Netto, Gonçalo Mar, ±MAISMENOS±, Paulo Arraiano and Pedro Matos will be the five Portuguese artists featured in the first edition of this venue.
