Know Hope | “Truth and Method” at Gordon Gallery in Tel-Aviv, Israel

March 23 2015 . 09:12pm

Know Hope is about to open a new solo, this time with Gordon Gallery in Tel Aviv, on March 26th. After intensively working on it for the past 6 months, Truth and Method is shaping up to be his largest solo exhibition in Israel to date.

For this new exhibition, the Israeli street poet pushes his signature textual works to a whole new level through a series of triptychs created through an extensive and very emotive process. The original idea of these site-specific quotes and verses was to suggest an image instead of illustrating it. For this project, Know Hope connected these with his love for tattoos and wrote those same phrases on people. By creating these life-long marks himself, using the stick and poke method, with no machines used, his work literally manifested itself in a new shape and with new life. Unlike walls, the people carrying these texts are actively presenting them in different situations, giving them a new meaning and context.

The piece I painted in memory of my friend was stolen. Last week I went back and painted this, a silhouette of the original image.

Know Hope | “Things That Stand Between / Things Left Standing Behind”

March 28 2013 . 10:37pm

 

“Things That Stand Between / Things Left Standing Behind”, Know Hope continues his observation on the various forms of intermediate states, while focusing on ‘things that stand between’- borders, fences, flags and walls.

In the exhibitions, Know Hope attempts to portray these images while perceiving them as an emotional mechanism.
The artist does so by personifying these symbols and creating parallels between their functions and minor human conditions that compose the layered everyday reality.

This is Know Hope’s first solo exhibition in a gallery in Israel announcing the openings of his two-part solo exhibition at Gordon2 Gallery in Tel Aviv.
