Arpaïs used to work at Copyright Bookshop Antwerp. She enjoyed being surrounded by books and her passion for them has stayed with her to this day.
As an artist she spends a good part of every day drawing in notebooks, so empty books. She also incorporates the written language into her plastic oeuvre.
Four books have been published about her work and each time she has been closely involved in the design and in decisions about the type page, paper and illustrations.
When circumstances allow – seclusion, silence, time – she picks up books by other artists, seeking immediate and intimate contact with their work.
Most of the books Arpaïs buys are about artists’ drawing techniques. Otherwise photography books are the mainstay of her bookcase.
