Petr Davydtchenko: Burnout

About This Project

We’re burning out like the stars, only much much quicker.


Psychological. Astral. Emotional. The burning out of books, communities, cultures and ambitions, of stars, of states and of ourselves. It’s a question of love, repulsion, and eventual exhaustion. Using video, performance, photography and sculpture, Petr Davydtchenko’s new exhibition traces various forms of burnout to the moment just before the fire, in a series of romantic gestures dealing with how we might burnout and not fade away.
