AMANDA JANE GABORI, 'My father's Country', 2021, Acrylic on Belgian Linen, 198 x 198 cm 

“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 grasses there called malbaa that the women used to gather to make woven grass bags called mijilda.”
