Coupling production with anti-production, Goyette explores a potential future by creating a “hybrid landscape” from the detritus of human consumption. Working across materials, her installation ‘Antifreeze (Fortified Flower Vases)’ arranges fake flowers, electrical wires and resin casts of consumer goods to repurpose the apparent waste that then acts as a “cipher for our own fading youth”.
