BiographyCameron Platter (b. 1978) lives and works in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. Platter’s interdisciplinary work examines consumption, excess, detritus, discord and conflict within a fragmented South African identity. Working from everyday experience with subjects overlooked or considered delinquent, sordid and lowbrow, he investigates notions and concepts of South Africa’s popular culture often with everyday objects as a starting point of his works. His work appears in the permanent collection of MoMA, New York; The FRAC des Pays de la Loire, France; Zietz MOCAA Collection; The Margulies Collection; and the Iziko South African National Gallery. It has been featured in Artforum, NYAQ, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Vice Magazine, NKA Journal of Contemporary African Art, The BBC, Utflukt, Art South Africa, and Protocollum.
