Florentijn Hofman: Rubber Duck in Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour

On the 2nd of May, Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman‘s inflatable duck sculpture has officially debuted in Hong Kong, sailing the waters of Victoria Harbour. The Rubber Duck project, originally debutting in 2007, has traveled around the world visiting cities such as Sao Paulo, Auckland, Sydney, Osaka and Hiroshima, but this is the very first time it has ever been in China. The biggest floating duck in the world, at 16.5 meters high will remain on show until june 9th, 2013.

“The Rubber Duck knows no frontiers, it doesn’t discriminate people and doesn’t have a political connotation. The friendly, floating Rubber Duck has healing properties: it can relieve mondial tensions as well as define them. The rubber duck is soft, friendly and suitable for all ages!” says artist.
