Appropriate for what was once a one-stop complex dedicated to law and order, life within the Central Police Station compound was strictly regimented by an intricate web of rules and regulations that scripted the daily activities of officers, prisoners, and the public.
How these regulations were expressed on various signages – from materials and textures to the language used – hint at the stories of the people, spaces, and rhythm of life that pulsed over the site’s 170 years of history.
This new season of Tai Kwun Public Workshops invites participants to rediscover the historical signages of Tai Kwun and create their own stencilled works using the fonts, colours, and textures found throughout the Central Police Station compound.
