Haroon Mirza (b. 1977, London, UK) lives and works in London, UK. Mirza’s work tests the interplay and friction between sound and light waves and electric current. He devises sculptures, performances and immersive installations that pry on one’s awareness of their own experience. An advocate of interference, he creates situations that purposefully cross wires. He describes his role as a composer, manipulating his primary medium, electricity, a live, invisible and volatile natural phenomenon. Mirza asks us to reconsider the perceptual distinctions between noise, sound and music, and draws into question the categorisation of cultural forms. Recent exhibitions include Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Australia (2019); John Hansard Gallery, UK (2019); Sifang Art Museum, China (2019); and Ikon, UK (2018).
