Lab rat residentie // 2019
Created in collaboration with Jeske Maas
This installation is a residence for lab rats to show our appreciation for their indispensable value. The lab rat has saved many lives, we should not take this animal for granted. Lab Rat residentie was exhibited during Maison Florida Screens It, Stadstriënnale Hasselt and as part of the online biennale TheWrong.org.
According to the federal law in the U.S.A these animals are not considered animals. This is an attempt to change that perception and give these animals a pedestal. Therefore we created a large installation where retired lab rats can relax and play.
