On Art Brussels Gallery Night, we’re thrilled to open a solo exhibition from Petr Davydtchenko who presents his video installation “Voznesenie (Ascension),” first shown at the Moscow Biennale (for young art). It is a six channel work with images displayed horizontally, vertically and diagonally, giving an omnipresent aura to the man surfacing from the thick residual mud of the underground. In addition to this installation, Davydtchenko will also present a series of new paintings that shed more subtle light on the depicted ascension.
