When the justice properly works, then there is no room for compassion, 2010

painted pencil, painted wood, glass 35x85x105 cm

When the judge has to give a death penalty even if he/she doesn’t personally agree with the decision but he/she has to give the death penalty according to the laws, he/she breaks the pencil, with which the decision is signed. This symbolic act means that the judge doesn’t agree with the decision and doesn’t want to make such decisions again.
