‘To Come Back” is the meaning for the new feature at Barangaroo, WELLAMA, a Cadigal word, its an invitation to experience the spirit of EORA country through art.
Created by artists Alison Page and Nik Lachajczak, Wellama is a celebration of ritual, ceremony and story practised on Country since time immemorial. It welcomes visitors to Gadigal Country and pays respect to the Traditional Custodians of this land. The work is not intended to ever to replace the traditional welcome by elders, but to strengthen the meaning of that ceremony and enhance people’s understanding of its importance among all Australians.
It is a 10 minute audio visual art loop that plays continuously and welcomes visitors to land, sea and sky country at Barangaroo. The work captures the essence of the ‘Welcome to Country’ by creating a visceral, and emotional experience that is a celebration of the continuity of culture through ceremony and the cycles of nature.
