*Please note: due to COVID restrictions this exhibition has been postponed until 2022. Please stay tuned for dates.*

Artist collaborators Isobel Knowles and Van Sowerwine are bringing the profoundly touching 360 degree stop-motion VR film Passenger to The Riddoch as part of their new exhibition, Take me with you.

Passenger is a 360 degree stop-motion virtual reality film that brings the story of arriving in a new country to life. Your taxi driver, himself a migrant to Australia, navigates the new terrain with you, acting as your guide while also revealing small parts of his own story. Passenger recreates and investigates the geographic and visual dislocation of arriving somewhere unfamiliar, and beginning the journey of finding a new home in a foreign land.

Charming characters, sets and behind-the-scenes footage will offer a rare insight into Isobel and Van’s practice. In addition, the stop-motion short films Clara and Out in the Open will also be on display.
