Hany Armanious

b. 1962, Egypt

Drawing upon mythology, cult iconography and shamanistic rituals, Hany Armanious' sprawling installations conjure up a world of alchemy and ectoplasm- a wunderkammer of curiosities that also represents a humorous jibe at the art world machine. At first glance Armanious' installations appear as a collection of odd souvenirs and kitsch memorabilia- in fact they are one off die-casts. In his exhibition Seflok at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, the artist conjured up a magician's workshop, where ideas of creationism, cosmetics and the cosmos are analogous.

Growing up in Ismahlia, Egypt, the now Australian-based artists showed an early aptitude for pulling things apart and remodeling them. This circular process can be thought of as a metaphor for his work. Taking the image of the potters wheel, the oldest symbol of human civilization, the artist places the act of creation at the center of his practice.
