A dead mouse and a broken coffee machine interrogates the relationship between a space of commercial hospitality - the café - and the supposedly non-commercial, contemplative gallery space. Encouraging the audience to consider the relationships between the two spaces, A dead mouse and a broken coffee machine agitates the coded social engagements embedded in each. The work is activated by a barista that is hired to refuse service to patrons.
