In Lego news….
Here is a shot from Sean Kenney’s “Piece by Piece” solo art exhibition, built entirely with LEGO pieces. And……a GIANT RUBBER DUCK was one of the pieces built entirely with Legos for the exhibition!
Ten years ago, Sean Kenney left his corporate career behind and became The LEGO Company’s best customer. Just see for yourself:
Remember the big rubber duck that graced Victoria Harbour in Hong Kong?
Well, it swam it’s way back into Hongkongers’ hearts, and now there’s a land-based version of the city’s favorite bird – in Lego.
Fans of the Rubber Duck caught another glimpse of their 16.5-metre tall yellow friend at City Gallery (in Edinburgh Place) – the city’s first planning and infrastructure gallery. Opened in 2002, the gallery displays Hong Kong’s major planning proposals and infrastructure projects.
The models’ designer Andy Hung Chi-kin modified the display to keep it up-to-date by adding in a replica of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s outsized Rubber Duck. This model has since become a highlight of the City Impression exhibition.
