 Haroon Mirza: The Construction of an Act

Description

'Haroon Mirza: The Construction of an Act' is the first solo exhibition in Australia by acclaimed London-based artist Haroon Mirza, bringing new commissions into dialogue with re-presentations of recent work to provide a choreographed experience of the artist’s diverse interests and applications across the last decade.

Mirza’s extensive and varied art practice – encompassing sculptural assemblage, immersive installation and live performance – has its origin in music; in the rhythm, syncopation and sampling techniques informed by the artist’s experience as a DJ. Mirza likens his methodology to that of a composer, arranging both the aesthetic and acoustic properties of materials and space into new audible, visual and haptic forms. His diverse artworks are linked through the medium and manipulation of electricity, and share an interest in modes of perception that go beyond the ocular-centrism inherent to the visual arts.

Continuing the analogy of the artist as composer, 'Haroon Mirza: The Construction of an Act' has been conceived as if the gallery was itself an instrument, with the exhibition forming an overall score. Mirza has considered ACCA’s vast architecture as a reverberation chamber, in which a disparate ensemble of works come together to form a conceptual and sonic whole.
