About the artists:

Chua Chin Chin

Chua Chin Chin

Chua Chin Chin’s art making is a journey that continues with her questioning of the natural being of matters and its duality. As in life and in dreams, she investigates the forces between push & pull and proposes a bunch of “What ifs?”, to abandon, peel, re-view and re-present what was known to her before. It is something that seems strange yet utterly friendly, aggressive yet delicate, to breathe the object in a new way and to re-introduce all objects to oneself again. Chin has participated at numerous festivals including Fetter Field no.1 & no.3, Substations’ SEPT FEST and most recently the Night Festival 2010. International works includes Maju Jaya in Yogyakarta and NIPAF, Japan performance art festival 2008. Also, exhibited visual art works at LaSalle SIA College’s Praxis space, the Esplanade Tunnel. Chin is not only a prolific artist she also curates. Her recent curatorial project includes the NOTEBOOK VOL:1 BEGIN at the Substation.

Though Ezzam was trained as a sculptor, he is most comfortable with installation art and performance art and embarking into exploring performance in film. His works varies from the choice of medium, concepts and strategies of presentation.

Jozef Cseres (b. 1961) lectures on aesthetics and the philosophy of music and visual arts at Comenius University in Bratislava (Slovakia), the University of Ostrava in Ostrava (Czech Republic) and the Faculty of Fine Arts in Brno (Czech Republic). The structural relations between music and myth, the problem of artistic representation in the arts, artistic intermedia and experimental and improvised music stand at the center of his research and theoretical interests. He is the author of two books and many essays, articles and translations. Since 1997 he has been the director of the international project the Rosenberg Museum in Violín, Slovakia, and since 1999 an editorial board member of the international journal for literature and arts Hungarian Workshop.

Under his artistic nickname HEyeRMEarS, Cseres balances on the borders between the discursive and nondiscursive modes of expression and between art and games in performances, installations, audiovisual collages and various intermedia.
