[Extract] In June 2014 the Australian High Commission in Singapore became the focus of Torres Strait Islander culture, through an exhibition of paintings and prints by Townsville artist Gail Mabo and performance of the Jaran Dancers, celebrating Mabo Day and NAJDOC (National Aboriginal and Islander Day Observance Committee) Week. The exhibition titled Mabo Kara Art, represents an intensive period of work, over the past nine months, based on the artists travels through Aboriginal country and her Torres Strait connections. The name Mabo has become synonymous with the struggle for land rights and the bond between the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with their land. Gail, the middle daughter of land rights campaigner Eddie Koiki Mabo, articulates her understanding of the natural environment, sharing with us insights, experiences, interpretations and visions of what land and place means for her.
