Meriem Bennani,
Party on the CAPS
@ C L E A R I N G,
New York

A rebus of present-
day personal anxieties,
strained through sci-fi

1988 – Rabat, Morocco. 

‘Party on the CAPS’:
Set in a Moroccan
neighborhood of an
island in the Atlantic
called The Caps, 
Bennani presents a
30 minute film depicting
a world of familiar but
perplexingly mutated
human relations; featuring 
oddball sculptural elements,
including bleachers clad in
fake albino crocodile skin,
irregularly sized glowing
cylindrical seats, and
a wonky multi-screen
setup that fragments
and sometimes warps
the projected images. 

We don’t take
anything for granted
here—not even
