Haroon Mirza, MindFilp
Frieze LIVE programme's 111 hours of duration stems from artist Haroon Mirza’s research into the physiological properties of the frequency of 111 Hz, one that has been demonstrated by scientists to resonate from certain prehistoric megalithic structures that served as centres for social or spiritual events. For Frieze LIVE, Mirza will present a new participatory light and sound installation MindFlip, in collaboration with soprano opera singer Sarah-Jane Lewis. Also on display, will be The Drummer, 2020.
Audiences were able to use a QR code to activate the work and the 111 Hz frequency, at 9 Cork Street from 8–11 October, 12-6pm.
LIVE is Frieze London's showcase for Live Art and sound. This year LIVE is curated by Victor Wang (王宗孚) (Artistic Director and Chief Curator of M WOODS Museum, Beijing). For the first time ever, LIVE will take place at 9 Cork Street in London, where Wang and a group of artists, will establish a temporary Institute of Melodic Healing during Frieze Week. This institute of sound and performance will last for 111 hours, aiming to promote community and healing by thinking through sound and body.
