TAKE ME WITH YOU
Isobel Knowles and Van Sowerwine
15 Nov 2021 - 15 Jan 2022 King's Floor
*Please note: This exhibition was originally scheduled for 3 July – 29 August, however due to COVID restrictions it has been postponed until November 15.*
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.
