Meriem Bennani, 2018
Party on the CAPS follows the inhabitants of CAPS, an island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean where refugees and immigrants ‘illegally’ traversing oceans and borders are interned. When international travel has been streamlined into teleportation, Party on the CAPS imagines the structures of displacement (physical and psychological) imposed upon immigrants intercepted by the United States. For Bennani, liminality of identification is often what defines diaspora. CAPS is a physical manifestation of that liminality, with its residents existing between geographic endpoints, states of citizenship, ages and genders.
The wind blows, rubbing against my legs made of layers of metal and wires, swaying the leaves of grass that have shot up from the cracks in the tarmac, and going off to the windows that look like the eyes of dead children in the wrecked buildings that seem to be everywhere as far as the eye can see.
