Meriem Bennani (b. 1988 in Rabat, Morocco) lives and works in Brooklyn, New
York. Juxtaposing and mixing the language of reality TV, documentaries, phone
footage, animation, and 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 films, installations and immersive
environments, composed with a subtle agility to question our contemporary society and
its fractured identities, gender issues and ubiquitous dominance of digital technologies.
Bennani’s work has been shown at MoMA PS1, Art Dubai, the Shanghai Biennale, The
Jewish Museum and The Kitchen in New York.
