‘Scartato’ Dumps on Brooklyn Thursday 30 April

Michael Meneghetti  Scartato

Over the last month and between an outer body food poisoning experience in a windowless room in Saigon, I have been roaming the streets of Brooklyn and Altona North for Art in Public Places 2015 (AIPP).

My performance work ‘Scartato’ means discarded in Italian and is a durational work that involves me collecting rubbish I encounter on my little expeditions around my local hood and, by taping these bits to my body I transform into a human monument of litter. I did this three times over March and April and filmed each experience, or garbage manifestation.

To conclude the project for AIPP I am installing the work as a projection installation onto three shops of the Eames Avenue Shopping strip.

I have also managed to get along local music outfit the Renovators for the opening which will be a totally experimental live jam street performance.

Projections, live art, pizza, the sounds of Brooklyn and a surprising amount of garbage will take over Eames Avenue for one night only.

About Michael Meneghetti

The little personal details can often be overlooked in the hustle of the city, but somewhere on the edge I always manage to stumble upon a little bit of visual gold! When I can, I make performances that explore a state of masculinity and curate video art for public spaces.
