Margarita Skokou’s “angels” remind us of Hermaphrodite, the perfect creature in archaic thought: both man and woman, son and daughter of Hermes and Aphrodite.
“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”.
Skokou’s creatures are messengers of joy fulfilling 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.
