In 2006, a four-year-old Massachusetts girl died from prolonged exposure to a cocktail of drugs that a psychiatrist had prescribed to treat ADHD and bipolar disorder; her parents were convicted of her murder. Goyette strives to confront the senselessness of… this story, answering logic’s failure to encompass the complexity of mental illness, poverty and child neglect with a mythopoetic, sideways use of image and language. Goyette portrays the court proceedings’ usual suspects in unusual ways, evokes the ghost of the girl, personifies poverty as a belligerent bully and offers an unexpected emblem of love and hope in a bear. 2015.
