Know Hope born in 1986, USA
lives and works in Tel Aviv.
Over the past decade, Know Hope (pseudonym) has developed a visual iconography and language used to mirror real-life situations and observations, and document the notion of a collective human struggle.
By creating parallels between political situations and emotional conditions, there is an attempt to perceive the political process and dialogue as emotional mechanism, therefore making it a conduct that can be understood intuitively and not solely intellectually. These processes take place both indoors and outdoors, in the form of site-specific installations, murals and assemblages, combining ready-made materials, mixed media pieces, photographs and text. By placing these works in public spaces, Know Hope aims to make the separation between the emotional and political non-existent, and allow the viewers to see themselves in the larger context of their surroundings simply by recognizing each other. Know Hope has worked and exhibited internationally and has projects and exhibitions scheduled in NYC, Paris, Cologne and Tel Aviv throughout 2015 and 2016.
