Sculptures, white clay, 40 x 30 x 25 cm approx. each, drawings, engravings, different sizes.

With the series «Class action» Domiziana Giordano draws on the tradition of work representations to insert an element of criticism towards today society.

«A global movement called Occupy Wall Street had just formed» the artist writes. «There was a lot of pressure in that period, the demonstrations were on all the front pages of the newspapers»

And she goes on to explain the genesis of this series: «I imagined the people of finance running away chased by protesters who look up as if to say: God why did you abandon us? I shaped the white clay by hitting it with a piece of wood to better define the emotional power of the period.»
