A salon in two-parts, the project draws from Shamberg’s sprawling network of artists, friends, projects, & places.’In Lebanon, at the border with Israel, there is a turtle sanctuary that is the result of being a protected area during the civil war. The almost extinct Mediterranean sea turtle was allowed to flourish.This is something good that came out of the war. I have gone through my own corporeal civil war and TURTLE is my sanctuary and celebration.’ Michael ShambergTurtle Salon @ Meter Room is dedicated to the memory of Hercules Bellville.
