St Kilda gallery Linden New Art has reopened to the public following lockdown, now taking limited visitor bookings across two sessions from Tuesday–Friday: 11.30am to 1pm and then between 2pm and 3.30pm.

One of three exhibitions on its starting lineup, The Long Shot stars a new collection by award-winning Victorian artist Jacqui Stockdale. Both locally celebrated and with a slew of international exhibitions under her belt, Stockdale is known for her symbolic, theatrical works, delivered through a diverse catalogue of painting, drawing, collage, photography and performance art.

Tied to the artist's continued exploration of Australia's early colonial past, The Long Shot flips the script on some of the more dominant narratives served up throughout our history. Here, catch an alternative version of the infamous Ned Kelly story, which challenges long-held perceptions by honing in on the experiences of the bushranger's mother, Ellen. It's an interactive show, featuring a variety of sculptural works — you'll see a piece cast from real dung that pays homage to the world's largest ever gold nugget, and even a towering likeness of Kelly's horse, crafted to the exact dimensions of fellow icon Phar Lap.
