Ikon premieres year zero (2020), a new audiovisual artwork by British artist Haroon Mirza. Launching on Wednesday 16 December 2020 at 8pm via Ikon Gallery’s YouTube account, year zero is a new commission by Ikon, with Art Fund support. The work is part of Mirza’s ‘modular opera’ series, composed by him and realised in collaboration with musicians, a singer and designer. Produced during the COVID-19 lockdown, it is inspired by the widely circulated smartphone footage of Italians singing from their balconies and windows at the start of the pandemic.
