THE CHIN CHIN WALL OF ART IS A NOT-FOR-PROFIT INDEPENDENT CONTEMPORARY ART SPACE FOR THE MOVING IMAGE. SITUATED IN THE MELBOURNE CBD AND VIEWED FROM CHIN CHIN RESTAURANT, FLINDERS LANE AND HIGSON LANE SEVEN NIGHTS A WEEK FROM DUSK, THE PROJECTION WALL OFFERS A BROAD RANGE OF VIDEO WORKS FROM LOCAL, EMERGING, ESTABLISHED AND INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS.

THE PROJECTION SPACE PRESENTS A CONTEXT FOR THE DIVERSITY, EDUCATION AND UNDERSTANDING OF CONTEMPORARY VIDEO ART. OFFERING A NON–TRADITIONAL EXHIBITION SPACE, WE PROVIDE A PLATFORM FOR INFORMATIVE AND EXPERIMENTAL WORK THAT IS PROVOCATIVE, CONTROVERSIAL ALTHOUGH NOT OFFENSIVE. THE PROVISION OF TIME, SPACE AND DIALOGUE ENCOURAGES RISK AND CRITICALITY. WE AIM TO FACILITATE CREATIVE NETWORKS AND CONNECT THE LOCAL ART COMMUNITY WITH THE GLOBAL SPHERE OF CONTEMPORARY ART. THE PROGRAM IS MADE UP OF BOTH CURATED AND PROPOSAL BASED EXHIBITIONS AND PROJECTS ATTRACTING A DIVERSE AUDIENCE LOCAL FOOT TRAFFIC, CHIN CHIN GUESTS AND THE MELBOURNE CBD PUBLIC.

THE WALL OF ART ACCEPTS PROPOSALS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

Crims, ‘Life is Sour’

‘Life is Sour’ is a colourful, wicked look into modern aesthetics, drawing influences from around the world and the stunning visuals and media pulled from its depths.

Bringing together visuals and styles from post-internet subcultures, movies, western media and Japanese displays, the footage is a vivid and aggressively chill view of the familiar and the unknown. With elements of military nonchalance, heavy anime influences and a life online, Life is Sour is dark, twisted, vibrant and a whole lot of aesthetic.

Crims – Working as a resident VJ for the international dance music event Cold Tech, Melbourne-based Crims first started VJing after a particularly inspiring night in Tokyo. With a life online exploring the post-internet subcultures, Crims works to create a look and feel to match each night's vibe and aesthetic. Crims has worked around Melbourne and Tokyo, creating visuals and displays that blend anything from dark cityscapes, vibrant anime, grainy military test footage and the more striking scenes of Hollywood.
