Drakina! Giant Dragon Skeletons in Belgium.

April 2012

Drakina! De Wereld Van Kina, Ghent, Belgium.

After nearly a years worth of planning the Drakina! Dragons project, brain child of the inspirational Frank Gryffroy, happened over a busy week in April.

With the help of students from two art schools (Secundair Kunstinstituut and Kunsthumaniora Sint-Lucas) we spent the week studying the museums collections, then translating those discoveries into the construction of two life size dragon skeletons.

The exhibition was finished in time for the grand opening (carried out by local officials, and the medieval King Charles.) displayed the two finished dragons as well as students sculptural and graphic work and a short documentary by film maker Tim Edwards.

A project made possible with the help of Dragon Hall, De Wereld Van Kina, Shaping 24 and The City of Gent.
