She also participated in the Havana Biennial in 2015; the 25th Alexandria Biennale for Mediterranean Countries, Egypt, in 2009, where her work entitled The Moon Inside of Me won the award of the Biennial, and Dak’Art – Biennale de l’art africain contemporain, Dakar, in 2006 and 2002.
Erruas works generally on large sizes and designs, white themed installations leaving light to underline the spaces. They are sometimes stripped buildings, such Almohada, or assemblies created from the same items as knives: both works have been shown at MuHka Museum of Contemporary Art Antwerp, Belgium.
