New Art Exhibition on Acland Street, St Kilda
Linden New Art on Acland Street in St Kilda, opened a new art exhibition on 10 February, which will run until 5 March, 2017.

Changing Places is a response to the heritage listed public gallery's temporary relocation during most of 2017 due to major renovations.

The exhibition sees the collaborative work of contemporary artists on display, who all explore the theme of 'changing places'

Participating artists include Chris Bold, I-Yen Chen, Sara Morowetz
, James Voller and Siying Zhou:

Chris Bold
Artist Chris Bold maps and traces the movements of people in public urban places that usually go unnoticed. Holding a Master of Arts (Art in Public Space) from RMIT, Bold has created woven paper, map and ink images that reveal the marks left behind as evidence of those movements, to reveal a changing nature of familiar places.

I-Yen Chen
Visual and community focused artist I-Yen Chen was born in Taiwan and moved to Melbourne in 2015. Her new work Ceramic Petals is a response to her experience with changing spaces. "Each petal is a splintered memory of my home island, as well as a fragment that joins with others to form a new continent," says Chen. In 2016, Chen exhibited at the George Paton Gallery, where she was nominated for the Visual Art Award at the Melbourne Fringe Festival.

Sara Morowetz
Influenced by the scientific method, interdisciplinary artist Sara Morowetz was the winner of the 2016 Churchie National Emerging Art Prize for her work How the Stars Stand, which explored the way humans measure and understand time. The artist will present new work Tenses at Linden New Art using lenticular printing to allow the viewer to transition through past, present and future tenses within the gallery space.

James Voller
Photographic artist James Voller will utilise elements within the gallery space to demonstrate how St Kilda locals are living and how this way of life is changing. The artist has previously held successful exhibitions internationally with Moving House at the Christchurch Centre for Contemporary Art, New Zealand in 2010, and Streets of Gold at the Museum of London in 2012.

Siying Zhou
Artist Siying Zhou was born in China and uses multiple technologies and media to present subjects like religious practice and cultural traditions within a globalised culture. Her new installation Upside down Fengshui will examine how migrants adapt to new places and create familiarity in their new environment.

See Changing Places at Linden New Art from now until 8 March 2017, at 26 Acland Street. Open 11am to 8pm on Wednesdays and 11am to 4pm every other day of the week except Monday, when the gallery is closed.
