Her interests include exploring the links between art and publishing practices, heritage collection access and uses, digital development and on-line/on-site mediation tools.
Collection des incertitudes
The Collection des incertitudes finds its sources in public, digitized heritage collections, and consists in the entire set of "artefacts" marked by the presence of lexical fields pertaining to the notion of "uncertainty" in their archival records. The collection is in perpetual evolution, and evolves along the uncertain knowledge and recognitions of the scientific world. The Collection des incertitudes was initiated by Marie Lécrivain and Martin Campillo in December 2016 during DiVersions, a worksession organized by the Constant Association for Art and Media, in collaboration with the Brussels Royal Museum of Art and History. A digital project is currently in progress, and will be released in 2018.
ONE + ONE +
One + One + (saule o avalanche), by Marcel Berlanger & Evariste Richer, is the first volume of a collection initiated with the Centre Culturel de Namur in 2017: the exhibition catalogue is interrogated and revisited at each exhibition, in order to turn reproduction of artworks into circulating and accessible objects. A poster-catalogue of sorts, this publication is composed of two artist's prints, offset reproductions printed in a poster format (96 x 64 cm, 1000 copies, €15, published by La Houle), presenting the two pieces that were the starting point of the exhibtion: Marcel Berlanger's Salix Alba "Tristis", and Evariste Richer's Avalanche, with a text by curator Yves Depelsenaire. The next project, entittled Quatuor, will engage a new encounter: a new object for artistic and editorial dialogue. Press : La Libre Belgique, Le Vif/L’Express, Mu in the City, CRITIQUE D’ART n°49

"Points of Access: Reflections on Public Libraries, Special Archives, and New Digital Initiatives"
A short essay commissioned by Inland Editions and published in Bookspace: Collected Essays on Libraries (Oxford – London: Inland Editions) in 2014. It is based on a experience at St. Bride Library thanks to a Leonardo European Grant, and on a study on issues of accessibility in heritage collections and public libraries in Belgium, France and elsewhere in Europe. This article addresses the new web-based tools for on-line valorization and research, the public opening hours and consultation policies in various national libraries, and compares the nature of access to rare book collections and to research libraries. A final part provides a detailed description of various digital initiatives offering innovative projects in terms of access to knowledge.
Founded in 2012 the Fonds de documentation et de lecture à l'erg is a documentation, reading and resource fund at the ERG and started to collect publications, documentations, productions, donations from students, staff, alumni, friends, teachers, and gather a school archive with the help of the Student Council. The FDDDL was born from the desire to offer a space devoted to reading and exchanging ideas. As an archive, the Fund juxtaposes a range of works from several generations of students, as well as a number of publications that mattered during their studies, and that have since become personal references. The FDDDL seeks to render visible and to materialize the school's history by inventorying students' works and topical concerns, thus offering a glimpse of the Erg's singularity on the cups of its 40th birthday. The FDDDL is still run by students and a new online catalogue has been design by Florence Grosse in 2016.
