Item Details
This is a project I made while working within public schools based on the creative imagination of students, the stories they had to tell me and the chairs they were using in class. The project includes my own memories of mythological fictive animals I created as a child and my own journeys while I was sitting myself in a school chair escaping in my head.

​The installation is made with fabrics from Liberia and drawings of school chairs. The location was the Bay Ridge animal hospital and it was installed from May 13th 2017 for one month.

​Bay Ridge Storefront Art Walk was created in 2010 by local business owners and artists, as a way to showcase the diverse community of Bay Ridge and give it a unique platform for engagement and dialogue with the visual arts. While Bay Ridge is home to many artists and art-lovers, the neighborhood is under-served and underfunded in terms of public arts spending and grants.

Eirini Linardaki

Heraklion, Greece

Eirini Linardaki was born in Athens and studied art in France, where she lives for two decades. She lives and works in France, in the United States, and on the island of Crete. The artist deliberately creates happy images and colorful “bursts” of enjoyment and energy with children sharing their daily lives, since she thinks that childhood is the place from which all we come.
She created public art in New York, Paris, Athens and Heraklion and she was commissioned for several public art installations by the NYC Mayor’s office for climate change, the NYC Parks and the NYC DOT. Her public installations are currently on view in Heraklion, Athens, Newark, NJ, Queens, and Brooklyn, NY. She often works in collaboration with communities and schools to develop her installations. In her latest body of works she uses archival material and Wikileaks footage in order to incorporate conflict imagery in her discourse.

Available for commission/custom work
