Nothing to be done. Melany Nugent-Noble



Sat, Aug 8th, 2020 to Sun, Aug 8th, 2021


12:00 am


Nothing to be done is a sculptural installation in the Gallery’s Rotary Courtyard space by Melany Nugent-Noble that takes reference from the stage set of Samuel Beckett’s two-act play, Waiting for Godot.

The play, which was first performed in Paris in 1953, is about two characters – Vladimir and Estragon – who wait beneath a tree by a country road for Godot (who never arrives).

Visitors entering the open-air space are encouraged to pause and take a moment as they move throughout their day – to loiter and philosophize. The moon above is intended to provide a refuge for the imagination – acting as a focal point for contemplation where one has permission to let their mind wander towards adventure, possibility, and the unknown.

Melany Nugent-Noble is a Kelowna-based artist. Her work responds to the political and social nature of public spaces, and takes various forms including community-focused installations, and art books made from public government documents and speeches.
