Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori: Dulka Warngiid – Land of all
21 May – 28 Aug 2016
Queensland Art Gallery, Gallery 4
This retrospective of the work of the late Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori celebrates the life of the senior Kaiadilt artist from Bentinck Island in Queensland's Gulf of Carpentaria.
The exhibition includes the artist's early paintings, her large collaborative works with other Kaiadilt women, and her almost monochromatic recent paintings and works on paper. Sally Gabori's depictions of her homeland are abstract in nature, but retain representational elements which map traditional country and cultural identity in monumental paintings.
