Haroon Mirza’s ideas are examined through lo-fi yet complex assemblages and installations that employ furniture, household electronics, video and existing artworks to formulate temporally based audio compositions. Haroon Mirza’s work attempts to isolate the perceptual distinctions between noise, sound and music and to explore the possibility of the visual and acoustic as one singular aesthetic form.
Mirza has recently had solo exhibitions at SCAI The Bathouse, Tokyo, Japan (2013); New Museum, New York (2012); Manchester Art Gallery, UK (2012); Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen, Switzerland (2012) and Camden Arts Centre, London (2011), among other venues.
In 2012, he was awarded the Silver Lion at the Venice Biennale, Italy and he won the Northern Art Prize, UK the previous year.
