Meriem Bennani’s first solo exhibition in Germany will present Party on the CAPS (2018), an eight-channel video installation exploring displacement, resilience, and the relationship between identity and place. Conceived as a documentary set in a speculative future about daily life on CAPS, an island turned megacity in the middle of the Atlantic, where migrants are detained, the work amplifies reality through special effects and humor.

Party on the CAPS highlights Bennani’s playful and unique visual language inspired by reality TV, YouTube, documentary, social media, and animation, examining the boundaries of what we regard as familiar and strange, real and virtual. For the exhibition at JULIA STOSCHEK COLLECTION, the screens and sculptural elements that make up Party on the CAPS have been adapted to the gallery space to create a large-scale and wholly immersive environment.
