Born 1978, Mudgee, Australia. Lives and works in Sydney.
Christopher Hanrahan makes sculptures out of a whole lot of nothing: holes, light, empty vessels, transparent containers, crudely built structures that parade their rudimentary construction and purloined texts that allude to stillness, emptiness and the impossible pursuit of perfection.
Exhibitions include: "Creation Science" Gertrude Contemporary Art Spaces, Melbourne 2010; "New Acquisitions" Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney 2009; "ECR" (with Marley Dawson) Performance Space, Sydney 2008; "MAN" Penrith Regional Art Gallery, Sydney 2008; "Looking Out" Macquarie University Art Gallery, Sydney 2008; "Living on Luck" (with Nigel Milsom), NAS Gallery, Sydney 2007; "Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship" Artspace, Sydney 2004.
