Michael Meneghetti: Chiamata Del Selvaggio
28 October to 25 November
Art After Dark
“For some time my practice has involved making crude performances with prosthetics and costumes that change and affect my physicality. By building these new scenarios, I aim to engage with a wider group of people beyond the traditional gallery.”
Artist Michael Meneghetti draws on his experiences in rural Victoria, his migrant Italian heritage, and themes surrounding modern masculine archetypes to create performance and video installations.
Michael blends folklore and myth, science and technology, rural family history and makeshift ingenuity into new performances and installations.
Chiamata Del Selvaggio ~ Call of the Wild is a video performance that is feeding into a transhuman idea of creating future human scenarios for performance art. Michael is developing a pinniped (seal) scenario, which can be seen in this video installation.
