Sean Metelerkamp, from SOUTH AFRICA, was born in 1984. In 2010, Sean was one of the winner’s for his short film ‘Die Antwoord – Zef Side’ for the Youtube Play Biennial of Creative Video (Top 25 Videos of 2010) at the Guggenheim Museums in New York, Bilbao, Venice, and Berlin.

His most recent project involved voluntarily committing himself into a notorious rehabilitation centre in South Africa: Noupoort. There, he interviewed and photographed over 30 people addicted to various substances. No other photographer or documenter has had that level of access into the rehab centre. There was a special reason Sean had access.

From April through September 2011, Sean is working with Residency Unlimited within the framework of the organization’s partnership with Flux Factory.
