Joseph Grigely

American , 1956 -

After becoming deaf after a childhood accident, Joseph Grigely made this handicap the main generator of his artistic production. In his works he uses written conversations to communicate with his entourage on a daily basis. A conversation is thus rendered visible, giving visual form to oral discourse.The artist places the issue of communication and differences between speech and writing, reading and listening at the centre of his practice and integrates into his practice the concept of narrative in its most ordinary dimension : the stories that are part of our daily life.
