Cameron Platter’s work filters, in a highly personal and idiosyncratic way, the enormous amount of information available today. Blurring the distinction between high and low, his eclectic and multi-disciplinary approach to art making, typically draws from everyday, unorthodox, disparate, and often over-looked sources
Platter’s work has been exhibited at MoMA (NY); SFMoMA; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Le Biennale de Dakar, Senegal; and the South African National Gallery.
He represented South Africa at the 55th Venice Biennale.
His work is permanent collection of MoMA, New York.
Recent gallery solo shows include Blank Projects, Cape Town; Gynp Gallery, Berlin; Galerie Hussenot, Paris, 1301PE, Los Angeles, and the KZNSA gallery, Durban.
Press features include The Los Angeles Times, Artforum, The New York Times, NYAQ, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Vice Magazine, and NKA Journal of Contemporary African Art.
Born in South Africa in 1978, he lives and works in KwaZulu-Natal.
