Artist Statement:

"My Dad was born on the edge of Kabararrji south of Bentinck Island. So he carries the name Kabararrjingathi, his

country – that's why he is called "Gabori”, the English corruption of the place name. There are lots of grass there

called malbaa that the women use to gather to make woven grass bags called miiild."
