Meriem Bennani's Surreal Life | Like Art


836

In this episode of Like Art, Moroccan-born artist Meriem Bennani takes us on one of her inspiration walks in New York City. Bennani creates short, absurdist videos based on appropriated and manipulated footage, which playfully undermine our assumptions about reality. She is also known for creating Fardaous Funjab, avant-garde hijab designer, a character who challenges Western views on Islamic culture. Bennani introduces host Oz Woloshyn to her world, revealing the way pleasure and humor inspire her work.
