Gateway followed Meridians (Shanghai Expo, China) as a research group exhibition located at the Chinese Museum, Melbourne.
Three works were presented by Claire Tracey. The first work Bamboo Cloud was a reference to the natural landscape in Shanghai. The artist painted a series of chop sticks to replicate a forest of trees; that were coated with limestone or wrapped at the trunk to protect them in the winter months. All of these works are about sharing cultures and using materials from that culture to symbolise a journey and experience of travel.
