Descrizione Opera / Biografia


HARD WAVES (Kuanyin and Virgin Mary staring at the sea) simply mixes the sea waves with those of the clothes.
The statue of Kuanyin and of the Virgin Mary, that history has given us, are seen from behind and placed in such a way as to make visible the movement of their drapery: sinuous in one, straight in the other, in relation to video projection of the soft breaking of the sea waves on the beach.
Kuanyin and Virgin Mary, both embodying love and compassion of a “mother par excellence”, are considered at a first glance a meeting point between Buddhists and Christians.
Giuseppina Giordano was born in Mazara del Vallo, Trapani, on November 25, 1987.
In 2006 she began studying Political Science and International Relations at the University of Palermo. However, she interrupted that career in order to enroll in a Painting course of the Brera Academy, from which she obtained her B.A. in 2012.  In 2016 she obtained her M.A. in Sculpture with honors.
She lives and works in Milan
