(Works by Cameron Platter)

During this lockdown, the KZNSA Gallery in Durban would like to introduce artists it has worked and collaborated with, in its new series: Meet the Artist. Have some fun with them, collect their art, and watch their Q&A videos on the Instagram and Facebook pages.

Friend of the KZNSA, Cameron Platter is a Durban treasure! The KZNSA had the pleasure of exhibiting his work at the first Latitudes Art Fair in 2019, and hosted his solo, GALAXY AS0-730223NMJ-ZSDSSS in 2018.

View his virtual studio visit on the KZNSA Instagram and Facebook pages (they're unlike any other). Collect his work today.

Platter’s work filters, in a highly personal and idiosyncratic way, the enormous amount of information available today. Blurring the distinction between high and low, his eclectic and multi-disciplinary approach to art making, typically draws from everyday, unorthodox, disparate, and often over-looked sources

His work has been exhibited at MoMA (NY); SFMoMA; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Le Biennale de Dakar, Senegal; and the South African National Gallery.

He represented South Africa at the 55th Venice Biennale. His work is in the permanent collection of MoMA, New York.

Recent gallery solo shows include Blank Projects, Cape Town; Gynp Gallery, Berlin; Galerie Hussenot, Paris; 1301PE, Los Angeles; KZNSA Gallery, Durban and WHATIFTHEWORLD Gallery, Cape Town. Look out for his gallery takeover at KZNSA later this year.

Press features include The Los Angeles Times, Artforum, The New York Times, NYAQ, The Guardian, The Wall Street Journal, Vice Magazine, and NKA Journal of Contemporary African Art.
