Twenty Three is an exhibition of photographs by Micky Backham, selected especially for Peach from her archive of images, following a number of text messages and phone conversations between Micky and Peach. The pictures are, for the most part, portraits of family members, friends and acquaintances met along the way; through friends, at schools she attended, in the numerous bars and restaurants where she's worked over the years. This show also celebrates Backham's slow but steady practice in and out of a professional art career — exposing perhaps a different way of living an artistic lifestyle, and, of course, most importantly, exposing her approaches to producing images while going through it. This is the first solo exhibition of Micky Backham in The Netherlands.
Micky Backham (b. 1980 in Perpignan, France. Lives between Paris and Sète) makes installations with photographs, objects, videos and paintings. Currently she paints houses for a living too.
