OLTA
Walking Cascade

OLTA is a group formed in 2009 by 6 Japanese artists who majored Painting at Tama Art University. Our daily life is swarming with massive amounts of information such as videos transmitted by the media. OLTA compares such experiences with digital media to a waterfall in <Walking Cascade>(2016). From the journey to reach the waterfall, panoramic views before the eyes, the sound of cascades falling, temperature, humidity, to the surrounding environment, we embrace the waterfall using all of our senses. In this context, the ‘filmed’ video can only be secondary. Through its new work, OLTA tries to visualize the accumulation and transformation of information in three ways – using the body of the artists as the creator of the video, using the body of the information receiver, and using the media that document and record. In this exhibition, OLTA carries out a performance inspired by Rokusai Nenbusu Odori, which is a Japanese Buddhist traditional folk dance farmers in West Japan danced while chanting a Buddhist prayer. Their forms and tradition vary, but mostly groups of several people visit from door to door in the village, dance all night to the sound of drums, bells and pipes. In the performance by OLTA, the members dance to the sound of their own voices and instruments made by objects easily found in typical homes. The installation is complete by the combination of filming the performance, repeat and play, and the audience’s moves.
