Step into Tiyan Baker’s immersive installation and delve into the nuances of Tasmania’s tourism industry. Through documentary-style interviews with tourists, locals, artists, hospitality workers and academics, Baker’s work takes a close look at the blissful indulgence of Tasmania’s arts tourism and its impact on the state. The work explores the positives, negatives and complexity of our state brand of world class arts experiences, premium food and drink products, luxury accommodation and pristine nature, against a backdrop of declining political and fiscal support for the arts in Australia.
