“Mirza creates unique physical experiences at the intersection of art, architecture, sculpture, sound and music”
This publication documents the exhibition, curated by Elizabeth Neilson, at the Zabludowicz Collection, London in 2017.
Haroon Mirza delves into our understanding of the relationship between matter and consciousness, truth and belief. He creates unique physical experiences at the intersection of art, architecture, sculpture, sound and music.
For a Partnership Society centres on the notion that coexistence is a vital and positive force in a healthy society. The title is derived from a theory proposed in 1987 by American scholar and activist Raine Eisler who described opposing social structures: the dominator model, namely matriarchy or patriarchy; and the partnership model, based on the principle of linking rather than ranking. Her ideas were later taken up by Terence McKenna in his exploration of human evolution and our relationship to psychoactive plants. “Eilser believes that the tension between partnership and dominator organisations and the overexpression of the dominator model are responsible for our alienation from nature, from ourselves and from each other.”
