A contemporary art exhibition featuring two films created by New York-based Moroccan artist and storyteller Meriem Bennani who is known for entertaining use of projection and special effects video. A mixture of footage shot on phones and animation, the film imagines a future lived by inhabitants of a fictional refugee detention camp in the Atlantic ocean. With themes of migration and displacement the artist’s work asks questions about belonging, public gathering, ownership and resistance.
