Preview: Know Hope "Water Takes the Shape of its Container" @ Paris' Openspace

Our friend Know Hope is getting ready to open his newest solo exhibition "Water Takes the Shape of its Container" at the Openspace gallery in Paris.

Our friend Know Hope is getting ready to open his newest solo exhibition "Water Takes the Shape of its Container" at the Openspace gallery in Paris.

The exhibition "Water Takes the Shape of its Container" presents about twenty previously unseen pieces, assemblages of paper, wood and photographs, and an installation. 
This installation portrays a collective situation, taking the form of a pile of colored tree stumps, and showing representations of each component of that collective situation.

For Know Hope, art is above all there to remind people of their humanity. Know Hope shows “a portrayal of political juxtapositions, alongside emotional conditions, showing correlations, similarities, coexistence/dependence etc. By perceiving political situations as emotional mechanisms, not only does it broaden the discussion, but allows it to take place intuitively. Our intuitions are political compasses, and a political situation has immense effect on our emotional state and capabilities, the humanness that we recognize/don’t recognize in each other, hence the title Water Takes the Shape of its Container.” 

If you stop by Paris, the show will open on April 11th and run until the 25th @ 56, rue Alexandre Dumas, 11th.
