In addition to the artists’ books he has produced collectively, such as 11 Electrographs (1985), Fractures d’images (1994) et Espaces interstitiels (1996), the collection holds an individual album of 16 xerographic transfers, Hypothèses errantes (1996) and an accordion-folded xerographic book, published in six copies entitled Main-chinalement (1984). The BAnQ has also acquired many inkjet digital prints produced after 2005.
