Haroon Mirza’s exhibition featured a new body of previously unseen work including an audio composition and physical light installation, which drew attention to what usually goes unheard and unseen in the art gallery.
The first gallery space featured bright auras of light that illuminated a display featuring key works from our collection. Operating in sequence, the light accentuated the sculptures and paintings.
The adjacent gallery space hosted a transmission of Mirza’s audio composition, to become a ‘listening room’ where visitors could hear the usually unheard sounds of electricity (generated by the adjacent visual light composition) with the River Calder’s weir, which flows past the gallery and is usually insulated by the building.
