Max Fleury is an artist based in Pōneke. His practice documents performances and objects through video and photography. Fleury studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts with Honours at Massey University. Since graduating in 2018, he has worked on various collaborative projects that investigate the commons through vernacular forms of video influenced by vlogs and slideshows.
