Abstract (English)

Identifying a constant play of tension between sculpture and installation, Landry confronts MacDonald's work to installation practices. For Pringle, the "Quatrefoil" installation refers to gothic architecture and retrieves narrative from its modernist fragmentation. Includes architectural photographs and plans which inspired the artist's work. Biographical notes. 26 bibl. ref.
