British artist Haroon Mirza is having his first solo exhibition with Lisson Gallery in the new venue at 136 Tenth Avenue New York.
“ããã – Fear of the Unknown remix” inaugurates the second New York space of the gallery with an installation that highlights the artist’s recent exploration of the perceptual distinctions between noise, sound and light as experienced through the transformative use of psychotropic plants.
The new installation continues the themes Mirza began to explore during a two-month residency at PIVÔ in São Paulo, Brazil, last year. For the iteration at Lisson Gallery Tenth Avenue, “ããã – Fear of the Unknown remix” draws on his work in Brazil and integrates new footage and subject matter which addresses the current global political climate.
