Her title, guest book, two prints, and two hanging books
(yes, she climbed up there!):
She hung some of the prints in larger frames, as you can see, above,
but it is easier to see the images in these cropped photos:
A sweet shelf:
One of the hanging flip books (hand colored, I think),
bound with screwposts:
A student in my current class told me that Arielle once gave a presentation on Dieter Roth, which might have been her inspiration for hanging the books from the ceiling. His show, shown in the book Dieter Roth Books + Multiples: Catalogue Raisonne shows
a picture of his books displayed likewise.

Arielle, too, made use of light and shadow.
She used the shelves and little familiar objects to provide
a context, a frame, or anchor
in our reality
for her imaginative and otherworldly prints.
I can't help but want to start arranging little scenes
creating new little realities around the house…
Arielle Coupe's show was on exhibit February 17-23, 2013
