(=κοινωνώ) verb in greek

It means communicate, participate, offer but it is mostly used to describe the communion service in greek orthodox church.

In the center of the space and in the middle of the buildings facade there is a long, heavy, wooden, freestanding table. As a reference to the holy table and its heavy velvet table cloth, we created a fabric interpretation out of 200 wooden stripes. Behind this table, like some church remains, there are two concrete walls, separating kitchen and wc from the rest of the space. All other tables are put in a row looking towards the main one.
