Lisa Kokin


Lisa Kokin has a keen sense of humour, I love the fact that the very beautiful Panacea series is constructed from a self-help books. (images) "We are all fine just as we are, its the books that need to change." Lisa Kokin.
"It is clear that Kokin relishes both the challenge and the joy of using all parts of the book: the paper can be pulped and shaped; the mull sewn into tapestries; the covers stuffed into football-petaled flowers or sewn into quilt, and the headbands turned into flowers. these are all talismans and tokens of hope and beauty and change and reminders that we shouldn't take ourselves too seriously."
