Meriem Bennani “FLY” at MoMA PS1
Part documentary travelogue, part soap opera, and part juicy gossip session, “FLY” is a new multimedia commission that immerses the viewer in an environment of brightly colored, geometric forms and surfaces. An animated fruit fly serves as a guide through the video, mischievously buzzing around an open-air market, weaving through Medina quarters in Rabat and Fez, and bringing viewers beyond the walls of private homes and into lavish private celebrations. FLY’s numerous screens and wide range of cultural references evade conventional narrative, synthesizing the onslaught of information streams that compete for our attention in contemporary life.
