The inaugural Ian Potter Moving Image Commission for 2012 has been awarded to visual artist Angelica Mesiti.

Angelica Mesiti has been awarded $100,000 for her proposed project The Calling, an immersive, multi-channel video installation that will be shot in three isolated communities in Greece, Turkey and the Canary Islands.

The Calling focuses on whistling languages, ancient forms of non-verbal messaging that are still used today to communicate in remote and difficult landscapes.

The Ian Potter Moving Image Commission (IPMIC) is an initiative of the Ian Potter Cultural Trust and ACMI. The Commission provides financial support, as well as specialised curatorial, production and presentation expertise to an Australian artist. Each commissioned work will also be accessioned into the ACMI Collection, sitting alongside works by major Australian and international artists.

The Calling will be the first of five $100,000 commissions to be awarded biennially over the next decade.

Angelica Mesiti is represented by Anna Schwartz Gallery.
