Inspired by the concept of ‘self-destruction’, Genevieve Murphy is fascinated by the internal fight to resist destructive behaviour. 'The One I Feed' sketches a portrait of the conflict and the uncertainty 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.
Genevieve Murphy (1988, Scotland) studied at the Royal Conservatoire of Glasgow, Junior School followed by Birmingham Conservatoire for Bachelor of Music. She received a Masters in Composition at The Royal Conservatory of The Hague in 2013 and currently lives in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
