As part of our In The Studio series we speak to BA Fine Art third year student Heyon Cho from Seoul, South Korea. Her work will be in the Chelsea summer show from 17-25 June.

Heyon Cho

Describe you experience at Chelsea in 3 words.   

Conceptual, diverse and individualistic.

Please tell us about what you are working on for your final show.

I’m working on a miniature ‘dinner table for one’, a sculpture piece with assembled foods from different regions on a blue fabric to talk about international heritage and the act of choosing.

Heyon Cho

What has been your greatest challenge so far in working towards the degree show?     

I think the challenge was keeping motivation up. Sometimes healthy justification is needed in practice.

Heyon Cho

What do you see yourself doing after you graduate, what are your career ambitions?    

I plan to continue my practice as a freelancer, and hope to work with other industries in which my works can be adapted into.

What have you enjoyed most about studying at Chelsea?   

Good honest conversations with other students and tutors.

Heyon Cho

What would you say to someone who is thinking about doing your course? Any advice?

Be prepared to have very little limitations and enjoy how everyone is different.
