Ikon Gallery has been awarded an Art Fund Small Project Grant to commission a new digital artwork by British artist Haroon Mirza.

Titled Zero, Mirza's work is part of his ongoing 'modular opera'. It consists of a film featuring performers singing a new text and playing music composed by the artist, from the windows of their homes.

Mirza’s inspiration is the widely circulated smartphone footage of communities in Italy, singing from their balconies and windows at the start of the Covid-19 lockdown. 

Zero also includes a new electronic composition, performed by musician and frequent collaborator Jack Jelfs (pictured with Mirza above).
