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.

Timmi Tsapaliaris, The Feeling of Noticing

Timmi Tsapaliaris perceptual and aesthetic concerns are an ongoing investigation of the somatic and physical memory of place. The work is a mere passing moment or accumulation of moments within this extended investigation. From repetition to representation in real, literal time, one traverses the possibilities of the Australian suburban condition within which, a wide spectrum of unquestioning realities reveal itself. Within the comforting familiarity of each-day’s sameness, there also exists the unquestioned and assumptive – that for lack of time, and puncture we are not confronted to acknowledge. My work looks at the unquestioned banalities and possibilities within the everyday of which we are all a part.

Timmi Tsapaliaris was born in Adelaide, South Australia. She attended classes at the Ruth Tuck Art School when she was 7 years old, where she learnt the fundamentals of drawing and water colour painting. She was awarded the ProHart Scholarship during her Bachelor of Visual Art at the Adelaide Central School of Art. She continued her tertiary studies in Melbourne at the Victorian College of the Arts, where she was awarded first class honours in Fine Art (Honours). She currently resides in Melbourne where she works and explores new modes of presenting contemporary video art.

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.
