Ghost Net Art – Erub Arts
Erub, also known as Darnley Island, is one of the most geographically isolated communities in Australia, located 16O km northeast of Queensland’s Cape York Peninsula on the edge of the Great Barrier Reef in the north east Torres Strait.
This beautiful volcanic island, situated in deep turquoise waters is home to approximately 4OO Erubam le. The art centre has gained an international profile creating Ghost Net sculpture from derelict and abandoned fishing nets, wood-fired ceramics, works on paper, and textiles.
Erub Arts has focussed on the collaborative ethos of bringing people together, enriching artistic practice and cultural exchange, building participation and intergenerational learning.
