Haroon Mirza has won international acclaim for installations that test the interplay and friction between sound and light waves and electric current. He combines a variety of readymade and time based material to create audio compositions, which are often realised as performances, site-specific installations and kinetic sculptures.
Haroon Mirza was born in London in 1977 where he lives and works. Solo exhibitions include The New Museum, New York (2012); The Hepworth, Wakefield, UK (2013); Haroon Mirza/hrm199 Ltd. at Museum Tinguely, Basel (2015); a collaboration with Wayne McGregor on his Ballet Création for Paris Opera (2015); an exhibition at the Nam June Paik Art Center in Yongin-si, Gyeonggi-do, Korea (2015); and his forthcoming participation in Strange Attractors at the Marfa Ballroom in Texas in September 2016. Haroon Mirza was the recipient of the Silver Lion for a promising young artist at the 54th Biennale in Venice in 2011. He is represented by Lisson Gallery.
