ARTIST INTERVIEW

Hany Armanious

b.1962 :

Hany Armanious was born in Ismalia, Egypt in 1962 and migrated to Sydney with his family in 1967. He lives and works in Sydney. Armanious is a sculptor whose work is predominantly concerned with the magical properties of the casting process. Many of his works deal with the alchemical transformation of one object into another via what the artist has described as the ‘cult of casting’.

Armanious represented Australia in The Golden Thread at the 54th International Art Exhibition at the Venice Biennale in 2011. He had a solo exhibition at the Contemporary Art Museum, St Louis in 2008, and a survey show, Morphic Resonances at the Institute of Modern Art, Brisbane and the City Gallery, Wellington, New Zealand in 2006 -2007. His work was selected for the Busan Biennale in Korea (2007), the National Sculpture Prize at the National Gallery of Australia (2006) and Selflok, UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2003).

Armanious was awarded the Moët & Chandon Fellowship for a version of his work Untitled (Snake Oil) in 1998, and he was selected for the Aperto section of the Venice Biennale in 1993. Armanious is represented in the collections of the major state and national galleries of Australia and the Auckland City Gallery, New Zealand; the Dakis Joannou Foundation, Athens; the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego; and the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles.
