ViennaCameron Platter: IMAGINE - Works on paper and sculptures
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 every day, unorthodox, transient, fragmented, disparate, over-looked sources
Born in 1978, Johannesburg, Cameron Platter’s recent solo exhibitions include IMAGINE at Galerie Ernst Hilger Vienna; Teen_Non Fiction at 1301PE, Los Angeles; You Look Like Your Face, Éric Hussenot, Paris; Salami at GNYP Gallery, Berlin; 13 Works, Ever Gold Projects, San Francisco; and GALAXY AS0-730223NMJ-ZSDSSS, KZNSA (2018). Platter’s work has also been exhibited at MoMA, New York; SFMoMA; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Le Biennale de Dakar, Senegal; La Biennale di Venezia, Italy and the South African National Gallery. In 2015, Platter was announced as the 2015 Artist in Residence at Zeitz MOCAA.
His work appears in the permanent collection of MoMA, New York; The FRAC des Pays de la Loire, France; and the Iziko South African National Gallery. His work has been highlighted in The Los Angeles Times, Artforum, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Vice Magazine, NKA Journal of Contemporary African Art, and Art South Africa.
He lives and works in KwaZulu Natal, South Africa
