About the work
Lisa Kokin
American, b. 1954
Follow

Using repurposed thrift items, Lisa Kokin creates sculptures that develop connections between their material origins and new formulations. In recent work, Kokin’s preferred medium has been used self-help and psychology books, which she disassembles by shredding them into a pulp, cutting them up, or removing spines and covers for collages. In How To Stop Worrying and Start Living from 2010, Kokin sewed different self-help book spines into floral shapes with each “petal” bearing a prescriptive title such as the one from which the sculpture derives its name. Kokin strung and hung the floral forms, seeking to create the same positive affects of her subjects.
