Haroon Mirza - reality is somehow what we expect it to be

Ikon Gallery, Oozells Square, Birmingham, West Midlands, B1 2HS
Haroon Mirza - reality is somehow what we expect it to be

About

This is the most comprehensive exhibition of work by Haroon Mirza in the UK to date, filling Ikon's exhibition spaces with moving imagery, sculptural installation and electronic sound. Involving smart sampling, sometimes through collaboration with other artists, Mirza's practice overall is characterised by a knowing eclecticism and sheer physical impact. His (mis)understanding of the nature of human perception – of what and how we see and hear – is demonstrated and combined with countless possibilities of meaning, and so his aesthetic proposition is more to do with messages received than those transmitted, circumscribed by our constitutions, testing the limits of what we can experience and what we think we know.
Ikon Gallery is open Tuesday-Sunday and Bank Holiday Mondays, 11am-5pm.
