Tarni Eastwood (b.1996) is an emerging contemporary artist and curator based on the Gold Coast. Her multidisciplinary practice explores and preserves her cultural identity as a Ngiyampaa woman.

Tarni Eastwood has previously exhibited at Miami Marketta, Gold Coast Show, 2019 NAIDOC Exhibition (AFTM Gallery & Studio), Level Up Gallery, and HOTA Gallery.

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.
