A Chat With Cat Morin and Meghan Gagliardi: Mays Artist Of The Month

Citizen Vintage

Capillaries is Meghan and Cat’s latest publication in their collaborative book series.

Featuring a collection of poems written by Meghan, capillaries maps the lifecycle of intimacy: how it shapes our evolution, while forcing cracks and fissures in our intuition. Landscape renderings, generated and adapted by Cat, outline the precipitous nature of these cycles.

About the artists:
Meghan writes poetry about memory and ecologies of and between bodies. She studies feminist geography and works on the collaborative and collective transformation of the university towards inclusion, representation, and visibility. Read more of her work atcargocollective.com/meghangagliardi.

Cat is a multidisciplinary artist currently concentrating on illustration, animation, and zine printing. See more of her work at cargocollective.com/catmorin.
 

Both artists are inspired by bodies and landscapes. These entities are deeply political and represent more than a metaphor; understanding this, the artists would like to acknowledge that the space housing their installation is located on unceded Kanien'kehá:ka territory.

A Chat With Lovestruck: Our February Artist

Citizen Vintage


Lovestruck prints expo & window installation for Citizen Vintage is about softness, intimacy and love. As always, they wanna represent non-hetrocentric relationships and share feelings of softness and beauty. 

'Through screen printing and illustration, I explore a personal account of soft and femme aesthetics focused on lesbian and feminist subjects. More specifically, care-work, emotions and the reclamation of space are the driving topics of my illustrations. The representation of femme relationships in my work endeavors to challenge heteronormativity by making us more visible and relatable. 

Genevieve Allard

Genevieve Allard


My work includes images of strong femme folks who inspire me to be authentic: sensitive, unapologetic, emotional, sexually empowered, in control, gender non-conforming, and well, really just whatever we want to be!

Also i like drawing cute animals. ''

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?

 Déssinatrice, which is pretty much the word I had for illustrator. I change ideas many times but I really liked drawing and my dad had made me little business cards saying: Geneviève, Déssinatrice, at like 8. 

 

What are you listening to right now? 

 Christine and the Queens, again. 

 

What would the perfect day be like for you ?

Seeing something happening in the news that would make me feel good about our world for a bit and being out of the city with loved ones for a little trip. Seeing a big sky with a light heart I guess.

 

What are you working on right now?

A zine about fantastic and inspiring women and people around me. Maybe illustrating a feminist book for young girls...

 

If your window display was a planet what celebrities would live there? 

 Christine and the Queens, eheh.

 

Did you go to art school or are you self taught? 

Both I guess, did Cegep in art and then one year of university. When back to drawing and screen printing more seriously years after..

 

In 5 words, how would you describe your aesthetic?

Soft, femme, strong, direct and cute. 

 

What’s your favorite fashion decade ?

i'm a 90's girls for sure. Bjork + spice girls forever.

 

How would you describe your style ?

I'm either into magic soft fluffy pastel vibes or all black and simple lines.

 

What’s your favorite vintage purchase ?

This winter definitely this cozy pink sweater with 2 cats on the pocket. The cats are like a couple, they have little accessories but are gender neutral. I got it at your store ;)
