Sarah Decristoforo re-texts CENTRAL to LATER, turns place into time, completely place- and time-related for the project, but probably a little bit for herself as well. She turns nowhere into now-here, twisting letters and meaning with a playful gesture, showing the magic of the hidden. It seems she wants to stay a little longer in the in-between, to read the future from there: She transforms the café into an "oracle consulting" place. Without being asked, one receives a cryptic and coincidental interpretation of one' s future, not in a tea set, but in a cappuccino cup. The transcendent messages and questions are like hard-boiled fortune cookies. It is also questionable whether the flag raising above our heads is one that promises good things, speaks of new days, or vexingly flips into purgatory. Sunrise in misalignment. // Text: Katharina Lackner
