Grandma’s Warning

Grandma’s Warning (2019) by Farey is a response to the bedroom as an intimate, cherished space. Under investigation, this space reveals much about the occupant’s life, reflecting who they are.

These complexities are forever tarnished by the unearned and nonsensical people they were written to become. These women deserved better, and so did we.
