Detailed description

Sculpture "Lady Justice" (2002), bronze

Her sculpture "Lady Justice" is a very personal visualisation of the theme of justice and righteousness. The representation with scales and a blindfold, which adorns numerous courtrooms, town halls and residences, also dates from this time. She decides "without regard to the status". The two artists ironise the common representations and inspire all kinds of intellectual games. Thus "Lady Justice" wears a sticking plaster over her eyes - maybe a reaction to the violation of law and order all over the world. With the symmetrically spread weight arms, her figure itself is reminiscent of a scale. She holds two hearts in her hands, one of which is horned: Being right is not enough. You also have to win your case... Lady Justice's body consists of two-thirds of a paragraph sign: Justice is based on the law!

About Andora + Della

Andora was born in East Berlin in 1957. In 1976, he was sentenced to one year in prison for "disobedience" to the GDR fatherland. After his release, he worked as a gravedigger, stoker, sacristan, lift boy... and failed again within the system. In 1980, he was imprisoned again and deported. Andora came to West Germany, and upon finishing his studies, he "immediately gave up trying to become a respectable member of society..."

His actual creative era began in 1985. His first paintings in a neo-expressive style, testify the beginning of a search for his very own style. Finally, he developed an independent imagery and expanded his chosen means of artistic expression. Soon solo exhibitions and participation in exhibitions in Germany, other European countries and the USA followed. At the same time, he initiated predominantly spectacular "Projects for the Preservation of Contemporary Art in Everyday Life," through which Andora gained the resonance of a large audience. These projects were developed in close collaboration with the industry, but artistic freedom always remained paramount.

He created "the fastest work of art in the world" with a hand-painted Formula 1 racing car, designed the boxing robe for the famous German boxer Henry Maske, and painted a Russian Proton rocket that made art history in space. For the Expo in Hanover in 2000, he designed a gigantic Lower Saxony horse, based on the coat of arms of the state.

Today, Andora lives and works in Berlin. Most of his works are exhibited in European and American collections. The long-standing collaboration with his artist colleague Della, born in Hanover, Germany in 1956, became official at the beginning of 1999 under the name "Studio 4".
