Take me with you was a dynamic temporal exhibition and installation by artist collaborators, Isobel Knowles & Van Sowerwine exhibited in ArtSpace at Realm from 17 February to 15 March. The exhibition surveyed almost 20 years of their creative practice, including animations, models and digital videos and VR. Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 pandemic the exhibition closed early.

We are pleased to bring you an online snapshot of the exhibition that includes photographic documentation of the installations as well as two short documentaries screened at the exhibition that give an insight into their artistic practice. 


Isobel Knowles and Van Sowerwine are known for their technologically adventurous, elaborately detailed animated storytelling through film and immersive installations. Take me with you brought together, for the first time, a suite of artworks by these two talented artist collaborators.

A highlight of the exhibition was 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 was 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, offering a rare insight into their practice for all ages.
