Cameron Platter
South African, b. 1978
Follow

Cameron Platter was born in 1978, Johannesburg. He graduated with a BFA in painting from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, Cape Town, in 2001. Recent exhibitions include Imaginary Fact, Contemporary South African Art and the Archive, 55th Venice Biennale; Impressions from South Africa, 1965 to Now, Museum of Modern Art, New York; Rencontres Internationales, The Centre Georges Pomidou, Paris and Haus Der Kultur, Berlin; Le Biennale de Dakar 2010, Dakar, Senegal; Coca-Colonization, Marte Museum, El Salvador; and Absent Heroes, Iziko South African National Gallery.

Platter fills the ordinary and marginal, with incendiary new meaning. Working from everyday experience with subjects overlooked or considered delinquent, sordid and lowbrow, he reconnoiters notions and concepts on the outside fringes of South Africa’s popular culture.

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 New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Vice Magazine, NKA Journal of Contemporary African Art, Artforum, and Art South Africa.

He lives and works in KwaZulu Natal and Cape Town, South Africa. Platter has recently been announced as the 2015 Artist in Residence at Zeitz MOCAA.
