Reflections from Paris.
Sally Gabori’s daughter, Amanda Jane Gabori Dibirdibi, and two of her great-granddaughters, Narelle Gabori and Tori Juwarnda Wilson Gabori have travelled to Paris for the opening of Mirdidingkingathi Juwarnda Sally Gabori at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain in Paris, France, to celebrate this significant exhibition and honour their mother and great-grandmothers legacy. Joined by Beverly Knight and Alcaston Gallery staff, Adriana Del Medico and Kaitlyn Gibson, the past week has been filled many special events paying tribute to Sally Gabori’s legacy as one of Australia’s greatest artists.
Following the official opening of the exhibition on Sunday 3 July, the family attended a very special event on Monday evening at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain ‘Songs of Belonging with Deborah Cheetham AO, Toni Lalich & Chineke! Chamber Ensemble” where renowned Australian soprano and composer Deborah Cheetham AO (of the Yorta Yorta people) presented a bespoke recital of works for and as part of the Sally Gabori exhibition, with the world premiere of Dibirdibi, a homage to Sally Gabori in the Kayardilt language.
The following evening, Amanda, Tori and Narelle joined by Kayardilt linguist and anthropologist, Nicholas Evans, and Australian Indigenous Art Specialists, Bruce Johnson McLean and Judith Ryan discussed Sally Gabori’s artistic and cultural legacy, paying tribute an artist, whose work continues to fascinate for its spontaneous, luminous, and profoundly original character.
On behalf of Gabori’s family and the gallery, we congratulate and thank the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain on such an important and beautiful exhibition and program of events.
