A more pertinent setting could not be imagined for the work of Annalisa Pirovano, who examines the theme of the relation  between sexuality andpower. Her work takes up a subject that has always been greatly loved byartists: “Susanna and the Elders”. It is the story of a young and beautiful girlwho is surprised by two older men who are visiting her husband’s house. Thetwo “elders”, recently appointed judges, first importune her with obsceneproposals, then, faced with her resistance, accuse her before her husband ofadultery. Pirovano imagines the scene inside a vintage bathroom, bringing upto date the Bible story and bringing it in line with collective erotic imagery.Her work is therefore a reflection on sex, power and corruption.
