Hany Armanious - The Golden Thread

Australia’s participation at the Venice Biennale is managed by the Australia Council for the Arts, the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body. The Venice Biennale provides Australian artists with critical international coverage, exposing them to key new audiences, markets and contexts. This exposure helps build the profile of Australian contemporary visual arts and facilitates the establishment of significant international cultural links, networks and dialogue for individual Australian artists.  The Biennale also represents a significant platform on which the Council can promote contemporary Australian visual arts more widely.

Australia's official representation for the Venice Biennale 2011 will feature artist Hany Armanious at the Australian Pavilion in the Giardini. This exhibition will be curated by Anne Ellegood who is based in Los Angeles at the Hammer Museum.

The Venice Biennale comprises a curated show at the Giardini and Arsenale and more than 70 national exhibitions in 29 pavilions within the Giardini and other locations throughout the city.

Hany Armanious is a Sydney-based artist best known for his innovative sculptural work. Admired both in Australia and internationally for his idiosyncratic double-take on objects ranging from grand history to the everyday, Hany will be the sole artist exhibiting at the Australian Pavilion in the Giardini at the 54th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.


Hany has exhibited extensively in Australia, USA, New Zealand and Europe. His most recent shows include the Birth of Venus, Foxy Production, as part of New York Gallery Week 2010; the 2010 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art; Running Man, Galleria Raucci/Santamaria, Italy in 2009, Uncanny Valley, Roslyn Oxley9 Gallery, Sydney in 2009 and The Oracle, Contemporary Art Museum St Louis in 2008.

Hany won the prestigious Moet and Chandon Fellowship in 1998 and has completed residencies in New York and Auckland. His work is held in private and public collections in Europe, USA, Australia and New Zealand.
