Haroon Mirza’s atmospheric installations are sustained and interspersed by rhythm and sound; they combine videos with found objects, technical commodities or vintage sound systems. The joy and delight that Haroon Mirza in experimentation brings the familiar, such as colleagues’ works, into new, constantly developing and transforming contexts. »So, frequently I don’t consciously select my material; it reveals itself and, somehow, it makes perfect sense.«
The book accompanying the, as yet, biggest solo exhibition of Haroon Mirza presents the full spectrum of his artistic work as well as new and already well known compositions.
