The Legendary Pulp at HK Open Printshop & flautist Jasmine Choi 00:21:57 2017-02-22
Over the past year the Hong Kong Open Printshop has been adopting the theme of paper for its exhibitions. It’s rounding off that year of projects with a finale exhibition “The Legendary Pulp” in preparation for which three artists, from the United States, Australia, and Hong Kong, took up a one-month residency to demonstrate the versatility and possibilities of paper, and of art on paper.

Korean flautist Jasmine Choi grew up in a musical family. Her grandfather is a conductor and her mother a violinist. She didn’t pick up the flute until she was nine, although she’d previously tried the violin and the piano, but within seven years, at 16, she was accepted to the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. After earning a Master of Music degree from the Juilliard School, she played in several orchestras before developing a solo career that includes work with orchestras and chamber groups, and even incorporates experimental jazz and pop music. She’s here right now with Ben.
