Nicole Welch: Wildēornes Land
1 April – 7 May 2017
Nicole Welch’s Wildēornes Land is an ambitious, monumental cinematic exhibition combining installation, photography and moving image that investigates the Blue Mountains wilderness from a historical, cultural and ecological viewpoint. The exhibition draws upon archival records that illuminate early European’s romantic notions of Australian wilderness juxtaposed with contemporary ideas and concerns that reflect the inherent loss and uncertainty we now face for our natural environment.
A Blue Mountains City Art Gallery exhibition
