About

Isobel Knowles and Van Sowerwine are known for their technologically adventurous, elaborately detailed animated storytelling through film and immersive installations.

Take me with you brings together, for the first time, a suite of artworks by these two talented artist collaborators.

A highlight of the exhibition is the profoundly touching 360-degree stop-motion VR film PASSENGER, premièring internationally at the 76th Venice Film Festival; nationally at Melbourne International Film Festival; and winner of the Virtual Reality Award - Best Film at the 60th Thessaloniki International Film Festival.

PASSENGER is accompanied by a showcase of the artists’ major installation works and career highlights. Charming characters, sets and behind-the-scenes footage, which have never been seen before, offer a rare insight into their practice for all ages, including installation, film, animation and media art.

What to expect from the film: PASSENGER

Over the course of a single taxi ride, you will be calmly guided (by the voice of comedian and radio presenter Sami Shah) through a new terrain that recreates and investigates the geographic and visual dislocation of arriving somewhere unfamiliar and begin the journey of finding a new home in a foreign land. Because the artwork is a fully immersive VR experience it is not recommended for children under the age of 7, as regular contact with VR for children of this age can disrupt sensitive perceptual systems. It is also not recommended for anyone with vertigo.
