Exploring the Power of Water through Art Installations and Performances by Olga Saretsky
Art installations and performances inspired by the four natural elements are the roots of many art creations. Symbolically, we could say that art itself became the fifth element as a force that combines nature itself and the power of imagination.
Water is one of the most precious elements on our planet, and it’s no wonder that many artists and creatives are inspired by its beauty and mystery. In dedication to this life-sustaining substance, we present three projects that showcase the different aspects of water — Ice Cube, Melting Water, and River Rocks by Olga Saretsky.
These three projects – Ice Cube, Melting Water, and River Rocks — are indeed a combination of sculptures created by fabric, the intentional minimal geometric and organic shapes, all in the expression of movement as a melting key point where the inspiration from the natural element becomes an art performance. Also, the sound in these art installations is universally recognized as water, a vital element that interacts with our daily life. This is a key point in these installations, the sound allows people to understand and participate from their own memorable experiences with water in all its forms and phases.
This is an interactive installation where two performers step inside a white cube and press against the fabric using different parts of their bodies. As they do so, ice-cracking sound effects are played, creating the impression that the ice cube is coming apart. The performance lasts 10-15 minutes and is accompanied by a spotlight that enhances the show’s effect.
Her process of creativity has very often a root connected with her experience and admiration for nature.
This is a visually stunning project that features two white live statue performers attached to each other, slowly moving through melting movements that stretch and shape-shift their bodies. The mesmerizing effect is enhanced by the sound of water drops, which create an atmosphere of fluidity and motion. Once again, the performance is accompanied by a spotlight that emphasizes the show’s visual effects.
Finally, River Rocks is a performance that features two life-sized statue performers as gray, round rocks that slowly roll and move next to each other, creating a variety of different shapes that are reminiscent of a calming river. The metallic silver installation behind them is optional but adds a further element of visual appeal. As with the other two projects, the performance is accompanied by spotlights that highlight the show.
Water is a powerful force that inspires many different artistic expressions.

The water plays an important role in many cultures and is a symbolic part of many spiritual beliefs.

Creating this performance not only allows the public to experience the beauty and intrigue of water, but it also creates the opportunity to think about how fortunate we are to enjoy the fascinating visuals of this element.
