Know Hope has released a new book titled ‘Bound By The Ties’. The book was released earlier this month with a launch in Tel Aviv. A limited edition of 75 books with handmade covers were also released at the event but obviously these have long since sold out, but the standard edition is still available directly from the artist for only $35. Some more info on the book below from Know Hope.
The book is composed of a collection of drawings, writings, photographs and other side-seen moments, some from the recent past, and some from very close to the present. I sewed, folded and mended, retrieved and recited; tried to understand how we got to where we are now (sunken/sunken/sunken)
This is a book that contains a narrative that speaks of being born into debt, being overwhelmed in a heartbroken world and finding and recognizing eachother in these complexities. It attempts to document our rituals-how and why they were created. It is a folk tale of some sort, collective memories compiled like a time-capsule, or fireworks in a jar.
The book is independently published in an edition of 1000 and is comprised of 160 full-color pages and available from the artist's bigcartel shop.
