The giant rubber duck created by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman returned to Hong Kong on its 10th anniversary, and from Thursday (1st), the rubber duck appeared in various poses on the station platform, glass curtain wall, stairs, escalator and so on at Admiralty MTR Station. The most notable of these is the six-meter-high semi-circular glass canopy outside the "Rubber Duck Limited-time E Exit".


Escalators and platforms are full of duck tracks

The Rubber Duck MTR Art Tour sets sail from Admiralty Station to different communities, covering a total of 24 MTR stations. Among them, Admiralty Station, as the starting point of a pair of 18-meter-tall giant rubber ducks swimming on Victoria Harbour, has been transformed into a rubber duck-themed station - platforms, stairs, escalators, walls and other locations are full of duckling tracks, as large as a whole rubber duck, as small as water droplets, footprints and other designs.

Located at Exit E of Admiralty Station, the 6-metre-high × 24.5-meter-wide semi-circular glass skylight transforms into a duck face of a lively elf, using semi-transparent stickers, becoming the largest outdoor public art installation in MTR, echoing the original intention of artist Hoffman, attracting the attention of busy urbanites with an infinitely enlarged childlike heart, encouraging passengers to stop and feel and savor life for a moment.


In addition, the new styling series "Rubber Duck Duo Chang Tour Hong Kong", which combines local history, landmarks, cultural customs and community elements, will be limited to 18 different MTR stations in Hong Kong. The first batch of mini ducks with Hong Kong's authentic features have landed at 18 MTR stations, including famous landmarks such as the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower; Authentic food such as dim sum; Festivals such as dancing fire dragons and awakening lions; culture such as the big theater and the big Buddha; With public transport such as railways, minibuses and taxis, passengers can discover the familiar and unique elements of Hong Kong at each station. The second batch of six Hong Kong signature collections will be launched on 6 June.
