My Highlights from 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair 2014
Blurring the distinction between high and low, Platter’s video work U-SAVED-ME appropriates, references, and filters, in a highly personal and idiosyncratic way, the enormous amounts of information available to us today. U-SAVED-ME draws on sources as disparate as Oreos, R. Kelly, fast food, historical South African artists and Arts and Crafts movements, LSD, landscape, Deepak Chopra, poetry, interracial pornography, cheese curls, advertising, therapy, psycho-collage, psycho-meditation, and consumerism.
