In his first Tel Aviv solo exhibition in four years, Addam Yekutieli - best known as street artist 'Know Hope', uses the gallery space to create a large scale index and an encompassing installation composed of found objects

These objects are to be seen as relics, an archaeological survey of a non-specific past with each component in the exhibition numbered and assigned a text listed in an adjacent index, receiving an individual narrative and, in accumulation, revealing a chronology of sorts.

Yekutieli urges the viewer to engage in a reflection on the notion of 'hope', a multifaceted means that is used to cope and work through circumstance, in an attempt to form a re-imagined reality. Due to the structure of the exhibition, it seems that this reflection can only be done in hindsight, as an afterthought that reveals the multitude of layers that one situation contains an accumulation of subjective experiences that in themselves create a reality.

The collection of texts and their correlation to each component of the exhibition serves as a mediator between object and experience, revealing the scope of the sentimental subtleties of the human condition.
