About the work

Haroon Mirza’s work is recognised for installations that often test the interplay and friction between sound, light waves and electric current.
In the work Laws of Attraction, a drawing is executed with ferrofluid, a substance made of ferromagnetic particles suspended in liquid. The abstract composition is a result of Mirza’s manipulation of a magnet underneath the paper. Ferrofluid is sensitive to magnetic poles thus the shapes formed render a tangible evidence of the invisible energy at play.

Career Highlights

In 2024, Haroon Mirza is premiering Waking from Time, a collaborative, cross-genre production in collaboration with Birmingham Contemporary Music Group and will present a solo exhibition at Scai The Bathhouse, Tokyo, Japan

Maximum bids

You are more likely to be the winning bidder if at the outset you place a maximum bid i.e. the maximum amount you are willing to pay for the work. Your maximum bid is not visible to other bidders. If another bidder exceeds your maximum bid you will receive an automatic notification. If you have placed a maximum bid the auction site will automatically place bids on your behalf, but only as much is necessary to make sure that you remain the highest bidder, until it reaches your maximum bid. These automatic bids are placed in increments, as shown above.
