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.

Solo exhibition by Graphic Surgery | “Contra” at Mini Galerie

The Mini Galerie proudly presents Contra, a solo exhibition by Graphic Surgery.

Over the years the works by Graphic Surgery have been exploring the boundaries of different techniques and genres within their trademark style. The artist duo freely moves from paintings, to murals, videos and installations while maintaining their systematic aesthetics of diagonal lines, geometric planes and a mostly black and white non-colour scheme.

With an entirely new body of works Contra examines on-going dualities like abstract versus figurative, analogue versus digital and high art versus urban environments. By reinforcing these differences Graphic Surgery is looking for a balance in their works that reduces the paradoxes to rubble.

Graphic Surgery’s very first solo exhibition in their hometown Amsterdam will form a new point of departure for the artists. Contra marks an important shift of evaluating past experiments and contemplating the artistic practice the same way the ‘Contra Composities’ did for the Style artist Theo van Doesburg.
