"Roadside Picnic" - 2018

For the past three years, the Russian artist has been living exclusively off roadkill in an attempt to pursue a “semi-autonomous and non-governed way of life”. Davydtchenko presents his gruesome art practice mainly through video installations. One film shows an owl lying on the side of a road unable to move, another features Davydtchenko picking up a dead rat off the ground and devouring it raw.  Petr was inspired to go off-grid by the 2008 financial crash, and sees his grim lifestyle as a working prototype for 21st century living – subsisting on modernity’s collateral damage.
