COFFEE IS SERVED

This installation injects a piece of folkloric hearsay into the ongoing conversation about modern relationships and love. For some viewers, the magical element of this story is deeply appealing, offering a physical solution to indifference or commitment-phobia. Others react with fear and suspicion, as though the coffee might be a dangerous game of Russian roulette, or even a powerful love "roofie," capable of rendering the drinkers defenseless against love, or making them vulnerable to emotional manipulations.
