Éliane Excoffier : Nightlife au mont Pinacle
Living Creatures Found in the Night | La nuit retrouvée du vivant

— Yannick Marcoux

Attentive to nature and animal life in wild settings, Éliane Excoffier undertook a project grounded in the preservation of a forest. With the support of an art centre, Adélard, and a nature preserve, the Fiducie foncière du mont Pinacle, she positioned near a stream infrared cameras – those used by hunters – to record wildlife at night. The images in Nightlife au mont Pinacle have the capacity to create a healthy encounter – indirect and unobtrusive – between animals and human beings. Such an encounter is based on reversing paradigms in order to place us, as Yannick Marcoux notes, “in a position of vulnerability and openness.” “At night,” Marcoux continues, “we see less clearly and, as our senses of smell, hearing, and touch are not acute, we lose our mastery over the world.” This series of images fits within a “project of reconciliation” that reminds us that “living beings must be considered in their wholeness.”
