Claire Tracey’s Water Dragon is a project developed in collaboration between the artist, the Chinese Museum and the City of Melbourne’s Arts and Participation program. Conceived as a two part project, Water Dragon consists of a series of workshops, where school groups participated in creating a series of scrolls around the theme of ‘The Year of the Dragon’. The scrolls are to be exhibited in the Museum’s stairwell and level 2 gallery. These drawings will then inform the design of a dragon sculpture made from up-recycled plastic bottles hung above Cohen Lane in front of the museum. The artist of this piece, Claire Tracey, is a Melbourne based installation artist with a particular focus on art in public space practice.
