18-Metre-Tall Rubber Duck Will Be Floating In Hong Kong Waters After 10 Years This June

Have you heard about the Rubber Duck? Well, not the one you had since childhood, but a giant floating rubber duck! The Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman created a series of enormous floating sculptures of yellow rubber ducks called Rubber Duck. These sculptures have emerged in numerous places all over the world. Since his public art is meant to be transient, each Rubber Duck is made from scratch locally. And the Double Ducks are returning to Hong Kong waters after 10 years!

Double Ducks Will Be Found Floating In Hong Kong Waters!

Beginning on June 10, a pair of enormous inflatable rubber ducks will make a splash in Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong. MTR stations will also feature artwork related to popular installations. It has been 10 years since the place witnessed this art piece and this time it has a buddy!

Double Ducks by Florentijn Hofman is a collaboration between the creative agency AllRightsReserved and the Dutch artist. There will be two 18-metre-tall inflatable rubber ducks floating in Hong Kong waterways starting on June 10 and lasting for about two weeks.

The pair, which stands for the symmetrical Chinese characters for “friends” and “happiness,” will be positioned close to Tamar Park and the Central and Western District Promenade to welcome people and put smiles on their faces.

Additional Features Of The Artwork

A special series of “Double Ducks with Hong Kong Signature Icons” has been introduced in the area to add some joy to daily living. It includes 24 pictures of the cute couple at distinctive local locations like Choi Hung Estate, Lan Kwai Fong, and the Tsim Sha Tsui Clock Tower and Space Museum.

In addition, the Double Ducks have taken over 18 different MTR stations, including Central, Causeway Bay, Tsi Sha Tsui, Choi Hung, and Admiralty. At these stations, Exit E has been changed into a temporary “Double Ducks Exit” with rows of adorable duck footprints, wrappings, and motifs, as well as a huge duck face facade on the exterior round-shaped ceiling window facing the harborfront.
