British-Pakistani artist Haroon Mirza (*1977 in London, UK) works with the medium of electricity to create multi-sensory works with sound and video. His immersive installations explore the interplay and interference of audio-visual signals, sound, and light, challenging viewers to reexperience the relationship between each component and the surrounding space. He often uses solar panels as image carriers or in complex circuit systems that power themselves. In these dynamic systems, he combines references to technology and nature, spiritual practices and club culture with socio-political issues. With a highly collaborative approach, the artist questions the categorization of artistic forms of expression, drawing on diverse scientific, historical, pop cultural, art historical, and ritual influences. Haroon Mirza is a co-founder of the London-based record label Outputs, which collaborates with musicians and visual artists on interdisciplinary projects.


Haroon Mirza received the Silver Lion at the 54th Venice Biennale in 2011, the Zurich Art Prize in 2013 and the Nam June Paik Art Center Prize in 2014. His work was recently presented at the Islamic Arts Biennial, Jeddah (2023), the Lille3000 Triennale (2022), and the Liverpool Biennial (2021). The artist has had solo exhibitions at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (2019), Ikon, Birmingham (2018), Zabludowicz Collection, London (2017), Museum Tinguely, Basel (2015) and New Museum, New York (2012), among others.
