Abstract (English)

Brought together here is the work of two Canadian masters of horror working in the divergent fields of sculpture and film. Dompierre discusses their preoccupations: the social phenomenon of horror and the human body as the site of horror, causes and representations of death and, respectively, the absence and presence of narrative structure. Biographical notes. Bibl. 6 p.
