Erica Eurell is a Kumbumerri a Traditional Custodian from the Gold Coast with strong family ties to the Mununjali, Minjungbal and Wollumbin mobs. As a Visual Artist she works in weaving using various Natural Products and Yarns she also develops concepts with large and small pieces of driftwood. Working with children allows her to produce resources for the use in Cultural workshops and displays.

Erica Eurell has previously been a contributing artist to the ‘Skyweave’ installation as a lead weaver at the Bleach Festival 2020 and has delivered numerous community and school weaving workshops.

A Healing Journey is a large scale woven canopy, incorporating representations of local (Gold Coast) native, edible and medicinal plants. The installation will allow people to walk through/under the canopy as if entering a lush forest. Participants will be able to see the many different styles of weaving seamlessly combined with woven pieces displayed from people of all facets of life in our communities. This space offers itself as a place for restoration and reconnection, a place to reflect on what healing means to each of us.

Come and see for yourself at SWELL Sculpture Festival, Pacific Parade, Currumbin 9-18 September.
