Cameron Platter interdisciplinary work examines consumption, excess, detritus, discord and conflict within South African fragmented identity. Working from everyday experience with subjects overlooked or considered delinquent, sordid and lowbrow, Platter investigates notions and concepts from the country’s popular culture, often using everyday objects as a starting point for his works. His body of work encompasses drawing, sculpture, painting, video, ceramics and solid waste, all creating a kind of aesthetic result that navigates close to pop, sometimes ironic, sometimes similar to a sketch.
Cameron Platter was born in 1978. He lives and works in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa. His works are part of the permanent collection of institutions such as MoMA, New York, The FRAC des Pays de la Loire, France, Zietz MOCAA Collection, The Margulies Collection, and the Iziko South African National Gallery.
