Final week of Haroon Mirza at CCA Kitakyushu, Japan
26 March 2020
Haroon Mirza’s solo exhibition at CCA Kitakyushu in Kitakyushu, Japan, is now in kit's final week, closing Sunday 29 March. Mirza has won international acclaim for installations that test the interplay and friction between sound and light waves and electric current through sculptures, performances and immersive installations. He describes his role as a composer, manipulating electricity, a live, invisible and volatile phenomenon, to make it dance to a different tune.
This exhibition at CCA includes six new ‘Light Works’ - a group of wall drawings made using LED strips and cables in red, green and blue. When experienced together, the light waves of the individual RGB (red-green-blue) strips combine to create an ambient white light within the space. Also on view at the Dome Theater at Kitakyushu Environmental Museum is a new installation, Power/Energy, An Alternative Act, which is comprised of 8 electrical channels and 2 video channels. The videos in this work feature soprano singer Sarah-Jane Lewis, with whom Mirza has now collaborated on various performances, and Kitakyushu Province-born ballet dancer, Erika Miyauchi.
