biographie  cameron platter

Born 1978 Johannesburg, SA. Lives and works in Shaka’s Rock, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Cameron Platter (born 1978 Johannesburg) lives and works in KwaZulu Natal and Capetown, South Africa.

His work is a fantastical document of contemporary morality ; using stories appropriated from the universal themes of sex, love, violence, beauty, advertising, food, war, pornography, writing, politics, redemption, religion, man’s badness and goodness, dancing, history, lust, greed, things falling apart, television and spaceships.

Mixing traditional and new mediums, through drawing, video and sculpture, Platter creates a tapestry that is homage to historical themes, and an ironical take on what it means to be alive today in contemporary South Africa.

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, L’Officiel Art.
