Anish Kapoor opens new exhibition at Central Academy of Fine Arts & the Imperial Ancestral Temple
Haroon Mirza Tones in the Key of Electricity
Haroon Mirza has won international acclaim for installations that test the interplay and friction between sound and light waves and electric current. An advocate of interference (in the sense of electro-acoustic or radio disruption), he devises sculpture, performances and immersive situations that purposefully cross wires. Mirza's solo exhibition ‘Tones in the Key of Electricity’, currently on view at the Sifang Art Museum in Nanjing, is the artist’s first solo museum exhibition in China. Using electronic sound and light installations as a means of challenging and widening perception, the exhibition explores notions of the copy, artistic identity, constructs of value, and how the meanings of these vary across Eastern and Western cultures.
