MTR and HKTB Join Hands to Bring West Kowloon Culture into MTR Stations
By: MTR Corporation
Passengers can enjoy a series of artworks created by students of EdUHK at Hong Kong Station's Central Subway (paid area next to Exit/Entrance C). The art pieces aim to promote the rich cultural features and vibrant artwork of the West Kowloon community, as well as encourage public to rediscover the community from a new perspective.
The highlighted artwork in the exhibition is "Man + People = ?" which is a newly created large-scale wall painting incorporating elements of the MTR and the West Kowloon neighbourhood . Its creative concept comes from the idea that every journey is an element in building up people's relationship. In the painting, an MTR train travels between the iconic and traditional landmarks of the neighborhood, including the Yau Ma Tei Fruit Market and Temple Street archway to show that MTR connects to people's daily lives and creates many possibilities for the community.
Apart from the exhibition at Hong Kong Station, large-scale posters depicting West Kowloon images are also on display in the Yau Ma Tei Station concourse and Jordan Station platform till 7 July. Visitors can also scan a QR code on the exhibits to learn more about the artistic landmarks along the West Kowloon neighbourhood.
