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.
Born in South Africa in 1978, he lives and works in KwaZulu-Natal.
