An exhibition essay by Esther Bourdages can be found in English here and en français ici.


This project considers night as space. A space that has been radically changed with the advent of industrial lighting. A space that is produced and one that is influenced by a psychic charge that is driven by centuries of human experience. Night as host of revolutionary impulse, libidinal desire, criminal action, escapist fantasy, freedom ventures, hushed meetings and whispers.

This project considers night as time. A time of ferment and recuperation. A time of release and contemplation. The night is a time that slows down - even when it speeds past.
