Same thing everyday (2020)

"Max and Bena wanted to create a maquette of the perfect public sculpture to exhibit at Window Gallery in Tāmaki Makaurau. As part of this process, they created an assessment form to survey public artworks. Same thing everyday documents a series of surveys the pair completed with various participants around Te Whanganui-a-Tara during 2020. The artists compiled the responses into a slideshow set to images of the artworks and how they exist online and in public archives. They didn’t figure out what the perfect public artwork might look like. First exhibited at Window Gallery, November 2020. Documentation of the full show and installation can be found here."
