Details

We stared at the Moon from the centre of the Sun, is a new exhibition curated by internationally acclaimed artist Haroon Mirza from the Arts Council Collection, including new works he has made to connect together his selection.

Often taking the role of composer, Mirza creates atmospheric environments through the linking together of art works often using light, sound, music and elements of architecture. For this new exhibition modern and contemporary painting, sculpture, installation, and film and video works are brought together to explore how our experience of the present is influenced by the juxtaposition between the archaic, or the obsolete, and an imagined future.

The title of the exhibition centers on the recurrence of solar and lunar symbolism in our attempts to understand the past and our images of the future. Such symbolism also relates to the shared realm we all inhabit – the earth – the social sphere, the cycles of natural phenomena, shapes and symbols as endless as the circle itself. In this exhibition Mirza tests the friction and relationship between existing artworks, to create dialogues between them that unfold along the recurrent lines of the circular shape. These works will be presented in a spiral-like narration, twirling in an orchestrated loop, synchronized to punctuate the exhibition space with their own sense of rhythm.
