Erin takes aspects of the ecology of the Swan River (Derbarl Yerrigan) as her starting point. 

“The transference of matter into and out of the river and subsequent impact on estuarine ecology informs my new artwork. 

“A key component of this project has been my collaboration with composer Stuart James and percussionist Louise Devenish, who are using my sculptural works as musical instruments to devise a new song cycle.” 

The solo exhibition by Erin is a part of her Tilt residency at Heathcote Cultural Precinct in late 2020.
