“ORGANELLA” had presented at 21st Century Museum of Contemporary Art,Kanazawa in 2013. During the exhibition, OLTA had performed at the museum.ORGANELLA was based on the idea of evolution and the memory of life in the ancient time. With the idea, they had created a large scaled object and performed around, on and in it.
They aimed how people could share any close connections by searching solutions of how they could disconnect the many boundaries such as between landscape and body, subjectivity and objectivity, performer and audience ,and even the ancient time and the future through the performances.
The organs and earth strata are two sides of the same coin.
Like a great wave, they billow and twist.
Within that wave, biological memory arrives at me.
A word meaning little organ in a cell.
A “vessel” by which cells live in symbiosis.
The awesome, deep in biological memory, cause me to tremble.
In this vessel, gathering cells wriggle and squirm.
Eventually, they overflow from the body wall
And, wandering about, transform into premonition of a new body.
The performance played in the rain. The scene of the day was like a three-dimensional objects, which was expressed to wave the evolution of life, like swimming in the ocean. The drawing is “Swimming in the Boreal Sea” (2013). A person who is embedded in the daphnia goes back to the memory of the fetus and dreams of the origin of life.
