Coinciding with “Platform Africa,” Aperture is pleased to present a series of limited-edition prints by artists featured in the issue. 

“Nico Krijno’s subjects—whether physical objects or digital constructions—appear precarious and fleeting, almost tragically insufficient, changing shape as elements shift and settle, or even fall apart altogether, only to be rebuilt anew as mash-ups of themselves. And, as images amass, their component parts—material, formal, graphic—reappear, recycled and repurposed in new combinations.” —Sara Knelman, from Aperture Issue 227, “Platform Africa” 

Nico Krijno (Born in Cape Town, SA, 1981) lives and Works in South Africa. With a background in theatre and experimental video, Krijno switched camps to the field of visual arts around 2008. His performance-based photographic practice is realized in a variety of media, from sculpture, participatory installation and video. His first solo show, 'On How To Fill Those Gaps' in late 2011 - and the accompanying self published book - was widely lauded. Selected works have since been included in group shows in Edinburgh, Milan, Los Angeles, San-Francisco, Glasgow, and London. He was nominated for the Paul Huf Award 2015.
