KNOW HOPE (IL)
Over the past decade, Addam Yekutieli (aka Know Hope) 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, his work represents an attempt to perceive the political process and dialogue as an emotional mechanism, therefore making it a process that can be understood and participated in 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.
Yekutieli has exhibited internationally. He currently lives and works in Tel Aviv.
