Meriem Bennani

Meriem Bennani (b. 1988, Rabat, Morocco) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Juxtaposing and mixing the language of reality TV, documentaries, phone footage, animation, along with high production aesthetics, she explores the potential of storytelling while amplifying reality through a strategy of magical realism and humour. She has been developing a shape-shifting practice of using films, sculptures and immersive installations, composed with a subtle agility to question our contemporary society and its fractured identities, gender issues as well as the ubiquitous dominance of digital technologies. Bennani’s work has been shown at the Whitney Biennale, New York (2019), MoMA PS1, New York (2016), Art Dubai (2018), The Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris (2019), Public Art Fund, New York (2017), CLEARING, New York (2019), and The Kitchen, New York (2017).
