Wildēorness Land combines installation, photography and moving image to investigate the Blue Mountains wilderness from a historical, cultural and ecological viewpoint. 

The exhibition draws upon archival records that illuminate early European 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. 

Welch's artistic process involves traversing through areas of bushland, where she locates historically and environmentally significant landscapes to create compositions using large-scale projectors, generators, spotlights and research-inspired objects. Installations are enacted and recorded in situ, resulting in a truly incongruous image that records in real time both past and present ideologies.
