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.
