About

HRM199 / HAROON MIRZA WITH STEVE CLAYDON, JULIE CUNNINGHAM & COMPANY, SHIVA FESHAREKI, OKKYUNG LEE, RACHEL MACLEAN, STUDIO WAYNE MCGREGOR, SONNY SANJAY VADGAMA, STAN VANDERBEEK, NIK VOID, AND RESEARCHERS FROM IMPERIAL COLLEGE AND GREENWICH UNIVERSITY

Haroon Mirza is famous for his use of electricity as a material with which he orchestrates light, sound and video to produce kinetic sculptures, performances and immersive installations. Collaboration is at the very core of Mirza’s approach, questioning the conditions under which art is produced, with his exhibitions deconstructing ideas of singular authorship. Marking the tenth anniversary of the Collection’s home at 176 Prince of Wales Road, the exhibition will be structured around the re-imagining of two major works by Mirza: The System, 2014 and Adam, Eve, others and a UFO, 2013. In close dialogue with Elizabeth Neilson, Director, Mirza will rework these two installations owned by the Zabludowicz Collection to create a new exhibition which will explore not only the landmark building - its classical architecture and impressive scale - but also the works of other artists in the Collection itself, selecting artworks to incorporate into a unique display within the 19th century former chapel.

A full programme of performances and events will be announced in the coming months.

The exhibition is curated by Elizabeth Neilson, Director.
