In Gulayí [Woven Vessel], Chantal Henley presents a gathering of exclusively hand-woven, hand-printed garments and adornments that highlight the importance of retaining and reclaiming language, dance, song and design. Her garments are embellished with gathered fibres, shells, feathers and clay.
Gulayí [Woven Vessel] features custom prints that are a direct tribute to Henley’s Quandamooka and Mununjali kinship. They pay homage to Country and Water through woven techniques reclaimed by the many Gulayi makers who carry and contain the stories of their Elders.
