This will be the most comprehensive exhibition of work by Haroon Mirza in the UK to date, filling Ikon’s exhibition spaces entirely with moving imagery, sculptural installation and electronic sound.


Involving smart sampling, often through collaboration with other artists, Mirza conveys an easy-going knowingness through a wide range of cultural references that foils sheer physical impact. His understanding of the nature of human perception – of what and how we see and hear – is demonstrated and combined with countless possibilities of meaning, and so his aesthetic proposition is more to do with messages received than those transmitted, circumscribed by our constitutions, testing the limits of what we can experience and what we think we know.

“I don’t wish to make any demands on someone present with the work. If one spends time they will hear and see more. If one thinks and delves then ideas, concepts, methodology, points of reference and narrative will hopefully emerge but that’s not something I can or wish to control.”
