From the catalog essay by Maria Porges:
"In Kokin’s most recent body of work, thread occupies a magical place between these two, becoming the matrix for its own messages. These texts — and there are actual words in the majority of these floating webs of thread — are, for the most part, the utterances and writings of Kokin’s mother Mollie in the last part of an extraordinarily long life which ended In December of 2011, only a few months short of 100 years."
"How do I begin the story of my life?"
