Inspired by the concept of ‘self-destruction’, Genevieve is fascinated by the internal fight to resist destructive behaviour.
‘The One I Feed’ sketches a portrait of the conflict in a destructive mind, emphasising the attractiveness of this destructive behaviour and the euphoria it produces when you give in to it. Repeatedly feeding this harmful desire results in something far too complicated to give up.
