Echo Room

Haroon Mirza

Haroon Mirza is a visual artist who wants us to listen, to train our ears on the incidental sounds that surround us, and to connect sound to the objects that create it. In his work Mirza explores and attempts to restore the relationships humans have with sound that occur through objects, actions, and forces, relationships largely screened behind the black boxes of electronic keyboards, digital music players, TV monitors, and the bits of information they play.

The London Lisson Gallery his showing a series of his installations – including a soundproofed room enhancing echo, created by the artist in collaboration with his brother and architect Omar Mirza.

London Lisson Gallery, 17 May–29 June.
