New York-based artist Meriem Bennani (b. 1988, Rabat, Morocco) will debut her most ambitious film production to date, a new chapter of Life on the CAPS, a multi-dimensional narrative frame that continues her exploration of themes of displacement, biotechnology, and privacy through world-building and formal experimentation. The project serves as a contextual arch to Bennani’s practice in its entirety, integrating dual-purpose story lines that carry both entertainment and analogy.
A collaboration with acclaimed musician and producer Fatima Al Qadiri, the exhibition will also be marked by Bennani’s first book, edited by Bidoun.
Curated by Myriam Ben Salah.
Meriem Bennani’s new work is a co-commission with Nottingham Contemporary, UK where it will be presented May 7 – Sep 4, 2022.
