WHATIFTHEWORLD is pleased to announce that Cameron Platter will be exhibiting a new body of work at Depart Foundation in Los Angeles.
The exhibition U-SAVED-ME will be on show from 23 June until 24 September at Depart Foundation, 9105 West Sunset Boulevard, Los Angeles.
U-SAVED-ME is Cameron Platter’s first solo exhibition in the United States, featuring work made over a two-year period. Comprising video, sound, sculpture, tapestry, and drawings, the works in the exhibition cohere to form an immersive installation that captures the artist’s eclectic and multi-disciplinary approach to research and art making.
Blurring the distinction between high and low, Platter’s work 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 R. Kelly, fast food, Constantin Brâncuși, historical South African artists and Arts and Crafts movements, LSD, landscape, Deepak Chopra, poetry, interracial pornography, cheese curls, advertising, therapy, psycho-collage, and consumerism.
NERO will publish a book that combines images, text, and poetry to accompany the exhibition
