Haroon Mirza (b. 1977, London, UK) lives and works in London, UK. Mirza’s work tests the interplay between sound, interference, glitches and light waves, and the role that electric currents play in our everyday lives. His kinetic sculptures, which are often made from simple everyday materials, create situations in which invisible phenomena are made visible. Using turntables, speakers, keyboards, LEDs, and other electronic components, Mirza acts in the way that a composer would. He manipulates and coordinatearrangements of objects to produce distinct fuzzes, buzzes and new ways of seeing and hearing these objects. Recent exhibitions include Australian Centre for Contemporary Art,Australia (2019); John Hansard Gallery, UK (2019); Sifang Art Museum, China (2019); and Ikon, UK (2018).
