Born 1962, Ismaïla (EG). Lives and works in Sydney (AUS)

Hany Armanious is known for his fascination with the processes and problems of making sculpture –casting in particular. His work plays out these processes in a fantastical cycle of self-referentiality forged from an acute awareness of the analogous morphologies of form, material, and cultural resource.

Armanious was born in Egypt and grew up in Australia, where he gained a Bachelor of Visual Arts from the City Art Institute, Sydney in 1984. He has exhibited widely throughout Australasia, Europe and United States over the past two decades. In 2011 Armanious represented Australia in the 54th Venice Biennale with his exhibition The Golden Thread in the Australian Pavilion. In 2001, Armanious’ work was shown as part of a solo exhibition at the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles and later at the Ian Potter Museum in Melbourne. Other solo exhibitions include Selflok, City Gallery, Wellington (2014); The Oracle, Contemporary Art Museum, St Louis (2008); and Morphic Resonances, Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane (2007), and City Gallery, Wellington (2008). Armanious was awarded the Moet and Chandon Australian Art Foundation Fellowship in 1998.
