Post URGE勗. Some thoughts and photos

Well Tainan there you have it, my first Taiwanese performance, done! Molto, molto grazie to everyone who came along. It was truly a surreal night on that rooftop: the street noise, temple chanting, amped children running amok and garbage trucks mixing together with the live performance. Tainan is a magical city!

I have to firstly thank Svaraveena (Get Svaraveena’s “Honeycomb life” album on iTunes) for the opportunity to team up and finally play live! Wow!

Thank you to Jack and Anli at 182 Artspace, such a great gallery space and bar in Tainan.

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.
