Davydtchenko's mode of survival is an act against the economy of excess, whilst fundamentally being reliant on what civilisation destroys.

***

Petr Davydtchenko (1986) born in Arzamas, Russia. Works with social codes and symbols, approaching them through the lens of totalitarian regimes. Recently, Petr has relocated to Maubourguet, a post-industrial town in Midi-Pyrenees, France, where he is surviving off animals killed on the road through human negligence. His archival practice has developed into an ideological case study, used by interdisciplinary academics theorising an alternative socio-economic reality.
