Q&A: Angela Tiatia on gaming, diversity and winning the Ian Potter Moving Image Commission

New Zealand-Australian artist Angela Tiatia has been named recipient of the $100,000 Ian Potter Moving Image Commissions. We speak with her about the ideas driving her new work.

This week artist Angela Tiatia was announced the recipient of the $100,000 Ian Potter Moving Image Commissions (IPMIC). It is the final commission in a decade-long series supporting new moving image works by Australian artists.

Tiatia’s is proposing to make a new video work, Liminal Persuasions (working title), which will address the collapse of the private vs public, the real vs the augmented and the intimate vs the spectacle – tensions, which the gallery explained, ‘both reflect and are responsible for the chaotic and overwhelming feeling of the current moment’.
