The Lake Country is very excited to start off 2018 with an installation by artists Melany Nugent and Trent Noble. This installation will ponder the idea of community and activate the gallery as a gathering space by enhancing a sense of warmth, comfort and home with a virtual campfire.

Trent Noble and Melany Nugent Noble are Kelowna-based artists that work across an array of mediums, including animation, text, and public space. As a classically and 3D trained animator, Trent has worked on a diverse range of installations, video and interactive projects across Canada and internationally, including Stan Douglas’ Circa 1948 interactive app for iOS, and the play Helen Lawrence with the National Film Board of Canada. Also the Rockheim Museum in Trondheim, Norway.

In her artistic practice, Melany Nugent makes use of tactics of play that are negotiated through text and public space that aim to collate, destabilize and amplify repetition and patterns in order to create slippage and displacement of rhetoric, language and everyday routine. She has a Masters of Applied Arts from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, in Vancouver B.C. and in 2016, was the recipient of an Emerging Artist Grant from the BC Arts Council.
