Episode #266-Remembering GENEVIÈVE CASTRÉE with PHIL ELVERUM & MARIANNA RITCHEY
This week we welcome Phil Elverum and Marianna Ritchey to talk about the life and art of Geneviève Castrée.
Geneviève Castrée was a French Canadian cartoonist, illustrator and musician. She was the author of the books Susceptible, A Bubble, and more. She had art exhibitions around the world and toured musically under the names O Paeon and Woelv.
Geneviève passed away on July 9, 2016, at only 35 years old.
She is one of my favorite artists.
Drawn and Quarterly just released her complete works, a giant beautiful book organized, edited and assembled by her husband, Phil Elverum (Mt. Eerie, Microphones).
Marianna Ritchey is a professor, a musician, and the author of the book Composing Capital: Classical Music in the Neoliberal Era .
She’s an old friend of mine, and a longtime friend of Genevieve’s.
Towards the end of her life, Geneviève created an oracle deck from collaged magazines, and Ritchey was listed as one of her collaborators. If you get the book, which I really hope you do, you’ll see little bits of Ritchey sprinkled throughout, in a diary comic from Australia with her band Lloyd and Michael, and in lists.
I invited her on to talk about the oracle deck and her late friend.
"She was so great. She was a beautiful, wonderful, totally unique person, and I hope everyone will look through this book, and just think about how special she was, and how much she put into the world in such a short amount of time that she was here." -Ritchey
