Vee Speers was born in Australia and has been living in Paris since 1990. Her portraits have been exhibited and published world-wide. Speer’s most recent work ‘The Birthday Party’ is a series of short stories linked by the theme of an imaginary birthday party. In a conceptual and technical departure from her previous work it is partly a self portrait, sometimes woven with threads from her own childhood. Speers also wanted to use the imaginary birthday party backdrop to address both our collective human experience of war and our need to retreat from it into fantasy.
