Everyday Apocalypse is South African artist Cameron Platter’s first exhibition in the UK. The works on show form part of his ongoing series of documentary drawings. Once described as “the delinquent love child of Quentin Tarantino and Dr Seuss”, Platter’s work – often a riot of colour, harsh lines and bold words –  is concerned with chronicling contemporary morality through fantasy, satire and subculture.

With the 2008 US presidential elections as a narrative backdrop, Nigerian-Welsh director Branwen Okpako films an intimate portrait of a Kenyan woman whose life embodies a post-colonial, feminist identity.
