Lab Rats: Hashan Cooray

23 November - 6 December 2017

The subject of social trauma stands inter-dependently with the subordinate entities of the society itself. We play the role of a lab rat in our day to day existence; at times, full filing the desires of a third party or rather fulfilling our own agendas.


We exist in a system that was engineered for us. Entangled in the voluptuous pleasures of the above-said system, we allow ourselves to be experimented, numerous times under numerous contexts. Thus, you and I are conclusions of a multitude of experiments; both positive and negative. And in our struggle, as we rejoice the destructive-glamour in it, we are left to relish these final words;


“The World’s a laboratory, and all the men and women merely lab-rats.”
