HAROON MIRZA (born 1977, London) is a British artist. Mirza combines a variety of readymade and time-based material to create audio compositions, which are often realized as site-specific installations. In doing so, Mirza complicates the distinctions between noise, sound, and music, and alters the function and meaning of everyday objects and socio-cultural constructs. Recent awards include the Nam June Paik Award 2015, and the Zurich Art Prize 2014. He is represented by Lisson Gallery, London.
There are so many different types of tools an artist can use, from conceptual and theoretical onesor maybe language itselfto literal tools such as brushes and screwdrivers.
