Haroon Mirza to perform at Ministry of Sound during London Frieze Week
23 September 2019Haroon Mirza is featured in one of the most highly anticipated events in the London Frieze Week calendar. David Roberts Art Foundation’s Evening of Performances, will this year take place for the first time in London’s iconic nightclub, Ministry of Sound on Thursday 3 October.
Haroon Mirza, Jack Jelfs and GAIKA (UK) will present a new reimagining of The Wave Epoch, originally conceived during a residency at CERN – the largest particle physics laboratory in the world, and home of the iconic Large Hadron Collider. Incorporating multiple video channels, live performance, incantation, and musical instruments built from discarded scientific equipment, the work brings belief systems, speculative futures and club culture together for a performative installation, with a live set by musician and rapper GAIKA (Warp Records).
Inviting a guest curator, Louise O’Kelly (founder of Block Universe), for the first time in its twelve years, an Evening of Performances seeks to explore the importance of alternative subcultures and London’s nightlife as a space for freedom of expression in an era of rising conservatism. Other performances include Marijke De Roover, FlucT, Kai-Isaiah Jamal, Hannah Perry and Jimmy Robert.
