Melbourne-based artist Julie Shiels will present a new body of photographic works in an exhibition titled Hidden Life, A Domestic Study at Linden New Art’s newly opened gallery, Linden Projects Space from Thursday 3 October until Thursday 3 November. Re-contextualising found or overlooked spaces, this photographic series turns the selfie function on a mobile phone away from the self in order to see what can be revealed about the world of objects and spaces.
Shot from below, the photographs defamiliarise the ordinary and draw attention to the overlooked relationship between things and the places they inhabit. The familiar becomes strange when this popular and generally narcissistic mode of photography is subverted.

The images in this exhibition centre on the domestic environment and were mainly shot in the artists’ home. They form part of a larger Hidden Life series, which also draws on house museums and commercial spaces. This body of work encourages us to look more carefully at the world around us, especially the things that are hidden in plain sight.

The new Linden Projects Space is designed to spotlight the talent of artists and curators living and working on the southside of Melbourne.
