Waiting for Godot (from Struggle series)

Noora Geagea

WAITING FOR GODOT is a single channel video work that bid farewell to the character of the archetype suit-wearing male. Made in collaboration with the actor Niko Saarela, the main protagonist is depicted holding different surnames and waiting people. The absurd gesture reminds us that we must keep moving forward while invoking an emotional response to his futile struggles and efforts. The video is part of a series of eight single channel video works STRUGGLE.
