Dictionnaire illustré de symbolique funéraire


Erotique du cimetiere

Erotique du cimetière*
(Eroticism in the Cemetery)

Obsession, mourning and melancholy foment fantasies in the midst of funerary pomp and ambiguous sculpture. Woman, as a recurring figure in western cemeteries, reveals her status as an object sculpted by man and artist according to their own pleasure.

by André Chabot,
Edition Henri Veyrier, Paris, 1990,
Winner of the 1991 Prix de l’Humour Noir (Black Humor Prize)

 


Le petit monde d’outre-tombe*
(The Little World Beyond the Grave)

A report from the depths of a society that appears at first glance to be a sterile and diluted reflection of the world of the living:
well-to-do men, faithful wives and grateful sons…
Beware, however, for one tomb can hide another.

by André Chabot,
Edition Cheval d’Attaque, Paris, 1978

 

Le petit monde d'outre tombe


metiers et passions

Métiers et passions dans la représentation
des cimetières du Hainaut occidental
*
(Occupations and Hobbies in the Artwork of West Hainaut Cemeteries)

Like shop signs in the cities of the living, the aisles of the cemetery reveal an entire list of occupations. Here you’ll see the beliefs held by many who felt they were worthy representatives of the professions that gave meaning to their lives.

The two authors and photographer take us to the slopes of Montmartre for a guided tour of the Montmartre, Saint-Pierre

La mort et ses poètes*
(Death and Its Poets)

A collection of emotions presented more as exorcisms than rhetoric. From places of death to the lives of the deceased, from dying memories to funerary ballads, from obsequies to carcasses, these texts make up a mosaic of anxiety, suffering and hope.
