Joseph Grigely is an artists whose work consists of conversations, written conversations, as he is deaf as a result of a childhood accident. It is all about the paths they take, the shapes and colors they have and the stories that lie behind those scraps of paper, beer mats and notes that other people have written on in order to communicate with him. Joseph Grigely shies away from lip-reading (as he points out, the word vacuum can be misunderstood as ‘fuck you’) which leaves only the written word. As a big fan of ‘found’ objects in art practice, as well as any form of conversation and the writing, I really like his work.
