Tully Arnot was born in 1984 in Australia. His practice explores the effect that contemporary technology has on human relationships, looking at the isolating nature of our increasingly connected, but ultimately disconnected world. Alongside his work investigates the relationships with plants and ecosystems, especially looking at symbiotic and post human perspectives. He completed a Bachelor of Design Honours (2009), and MFA (Research) (2014) at UNSWA+D, both awarded first class.He had undertaken residencies in Sydney, Melbourne, Chongqing, Beijing, Berlin and NYC, and spent a year each working in Chongqing, Berlin and NYC. International study has included a semester at UDK Berlin with Gregor Schneider and masterclasses in Donghua University Shanghai and Politechnico di Milan for Richard Goodwin’s Porosity Studio. He won the Marten Bequest Scholarship for Sculpture (2015), NAB Emerging Artist Award (2014), and SOYA365 (2012), which included a mentorship with Liz Ann Macgregor, director of the MCA. I was finalist for the 2016 NSW Visual Arts Fellowship at Artspace, the Redlands Prize and FBI Awards in 2014 plus numerous others. I've had exhibitions across Australia, and in the UK, Germany, France, Belgium, Italy, China, Singapore, New Zealand, Russia and America. He recently had his first UK solo exhibition at Title Date Duration in Manchester, and will participate in the Coventry Biennial in October this year. He also just had his first European institutional show at Kunsthalle Bremen.
