‘I am PELĒKAIS – The Grey. I am grey as a baby mouse. I am grey as a bird, as a speck of dust, as ashes. I am the Speck of Dust.
Only because of me other colours can light up. […]
I am almost the most important colour.
Everything turns beautiful only when I am placed beside.’
‘The Grey’ tale by Imants Ziedonis

We believe that a space is a place for a person to inhabit and colour it with one’s own individuality. We’re in favour for the environment to create a person, and for a person to create the environment.
We’re keen on seeing Pavilosta alive, contemporary, and at the same time a place that honours the history. Therefore we’re letting this life into one of Pavilosta’s abandoned courtyards and enlivening it on various levels both literally, and abstractedly, functionally, and in the sense of ambience. And therefore we’re inviting people to enter this GREY courtyard with ‘The Grey’ tale by Imants Ziedonis, engraved into a metal plate, allowing them to beautify the place we all call home.
