Alia Hamaoui (b.1996) is a British/Lebanese artist living and working in London, UK. Hamaoui completed her undergraduate studies at Camberwell College of Arts, and is currently studying for an MFA at Goldsmiths, University of London. Recent solo exhibitions include ‘HINO 500’ at San Mei Gallery (London, 2023) and ‘Passing Pari-daiza’ at Soup Gallery (London, 2023). Alongside, Hamaoui has exhibited widely in London, as well as internationally in Lisbon and Warsaw. Hamaoui’s multidsiplinary practice explores the proximate relationship of humanity and heritage. Hamaoui aims to advance our understanding of the interrelationship between cultural identity, the object and place, as viewed from within our increasingly digitised society and tech-infused existence. Particularly interested in specific cultural artefacts that have been co-opted or utilised by the cultural industry in shaping broader narratives of regional or national identity. (typically in relation to our understanding of the SWANA). Hamaoui’s work combines ancient objects, architectural locations, and mass media moments into materially rich sculptural amalgamations that fold the body, heritage and space into abstracted entaglements. Often utilising tricks of haptic allure, Hamaoui’s interested in the tantalization of the senses as a mechanisim to question the gaze and audience participitation in how to re-contextualise, castrate or reframe the cultural artefact
