Burning Man Art Installation 2019: Catharsis

Catharsis  – http://www.mycatharsis.art

For 2019 Burning Man, Nova Ukraine supported a group of Ukrainian artists from Seattle who brought an art installation called Catharsis to Burning Man. Catharsis represents the stage after internal changes happened and we are overflown with emotions. It is the release of all those feelings, it’s the step that is freeing us before we are ready to take on new challenges. Twelve volunteers (of which 11 were originally Ukrainian and 1 American) built an 11 feet tall and 16 feet wide art installation.

Mark Tremback is the lead architect of the structure, while Marina Malyarenko is the artist who paints the butterfly in Petrykivka design. Aly (Alyona) Owens is the team lead and project visionary. Oleksy Ohurtsov is the movie director and records our team journey from the birth of the idea all the way to the desert.

The installation also includes a 3D heart and LED lighting as well as dark lighting. Many people have volunteered and donated to the project their time and by donating, attending our events.

This piece of art binds together a large team of artists who were born and raised in Ukraine but found each other in Seattle, WA.
