Bena Jackson / Max Fleury

I am not a tiny sparrow AKA Bouquet for Max (2020)

Single channel / Digital Video / Colour / Sound

This video was produced during the 2020 lockdown for Home Depot, an online show for play_station. Artists in different bubbles were paired up and invited to stage work as instructed by their partners. Max Fleury (based in Pōneke), asked Bena Jackson (locked down in Ōtautahi) to make a bouquet out of weeds. Bena, her mother—Kim, and their dog— Kuro, ventured into the neighbouring residential red zone to film I am not a tiny sparrow AKA Bouquet for Max.
