You may read below the text – English and German version – for Margarita Skokou’s participation in Myths 2015 at Munich Jewellery Week. In two weeks Skokou presents an intrepid follow up of the 2015 work by the same title: “Everything is easy under the sun”.

EN/ Margarita Skokou

Man and woman is one and the same. This is the message which Margarita Skokou sends with her paintings, ceramics and jewellery. “I often paint women with penis and men with breasts to show that we are all the same human being, in body and mind, in life and love,” she says.
Skokou’s works on paper, canvas, clay or silver remind us of Hermaphrodite, the perfect creature in archaic thought. Greeks thought Hermaphrodite was the child of Hermes and Aphrodite.
In Skokou’s works creatures with giant wings come and go; they are messengers of joy and fulfill everything their heart desires with outmost simplicity.
Margarita Skokou studied painting and ceramics at the Athens School of Fine Arts. She had solo exhibitions in Athens, Paris, Luxembourg, Düsseldorf, as well as in the European Parliament in Strasbourg. She has participated in numerous group exhibitions in Greece and France.
Collectors of her work include: “Cercle Munster”/Luxembourg, Vorres Museum/Greece, Museum of Contemporary Art/Thessaloniki, City Hall of Duddange/Luxembourg, Stadtmuseum and St. Anna Hospital Cultural Centre/Düsseldorf.

Die Künstlerin Margarita Skokou behauptet, dass Mann und Frau gleich denken, fühlen und lieben. „Alles ist leicht unter die Sonne“, lautet der Titel ihrer Schmuckserie für die Ausstellung “Mythen 2015”.
Beflügelte Liebeswesen verkünden uns, dass es keinen Unterschied und keinen Konflikt zwischen den beiden Geschlechtern gibt. Sie zelebrieren mit gleicher Freude und Intensität ihre befreiende Sexualität.
Hermaphrodit, das Kind von Hermes und Aphrodite – halb Frau, halb Mann – der perfekte Mensch der archaischen Kultur, wird von Skokou zum Vermittler dieser Botschaft ausgewählt.

Cine Trianon participates in the art project “Victoria Square” by US artist Rick Lowe for Dokumenta 14. ZLR Betrebsimperium aka Chrisstoph Ziegler + Loukia Richards curate the monthy art show series at Cine Trianon’s lobby.
