In ‘Bedfellow’, Caroline Tompkins confronts and portrays her innermost desires and fears, exploring the conflicting relationship between pleasure and danger within sexuality; the entire sequence hinges on a series of dichotomies, softness and hardness, desire and fear, attraction and repulsion.

The intelligence of the work lies in its subtlety in tackling a theme that is as broad as it is personal: the author draws on past experiences that have shaped her persona, approaching them in a varied language, interweaving a hint of humour with situations of intimacy and vulnerability, alternating with landscapes of the American West that are as idyllic as they are lifeless.

“I don’t know if I would have felt the need to do the job if I had not had to get a restraining order for one man and had not been the object of revenge porn by another. At the same time, I still wanted both of those men. I want the work to complicate this experience, like holding two opposing truths simultaneously.” – Caroline Tompkins
