Where for art thou is an ongoing second year BA Fine Art project that invites various students to engage with film/sound in the form of an intervention or a video montage. Shown from a window in the college these projects engage the general public as they traverse the Rootstein Hopkins Parade Ground of Chelsea College of Arts. In Chelsea Café Project Display #18 artworks and/or documentation corresponding to the recent interventions by four of the artists are on display.

ANDREW HART                                                              

Wind me up if I stop, 2015, mixed media, 49 x 39 cm.


Through the use of a variety of mediums, Andrew develops research for his practice as a painter, colours and compositions feeding into his work. Inspired by British abstract painting and Black U.S. figurative painters, he explores a way of merging these two styles in his work.

DHANUT TUNGSUWAN                                                            

The Soyuz TMA-17M rocket, carrying Expedition 44 Soyuz Commander Oleg Kononenko launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan, 2015, oil on canvas, 25 x 25cm

On November 12 Dhanut Tungsuwan showed his video ‘ICARUS’ (2014) which could be seen from the parade ground. The work made for the café project reflects his subject focus on rockets.

SERENA HUANG                                                             

People, 2015, paper and watercolour, 28 x 21 cm

Serena’s work emerges from filming everyday occurrences on her daily travels from Chelsea to destinations unknown using modern technology. The films are projected onto textural surfaces such as bubble wrap, a similar effect is explored in the current work, People.

SAPPHIRA FRANKL-SLATER                                  

King of Cats, 2015, fine liner and felt tip pen. 29 x 20 cm.
