The Sky Leans on Me, (me the one horizontal amongst all the verticals) was created as part of the Benaki Museum, Athens Out/topias Exhibition, the largest European exhibition in November 2016. 
The work was an open invitation to participate in rethinking the public nature of the museum space and consider ways in which the art form is held between the artist (who opens the space) and the audience (invited to inhabit and transform it).
