Drawing influence from Modernism and still-life paintings, Joseph Grigely, who is deaf, maintains an extensive archive of his daily conversations on scraps of paper and napkins, organizing them into installations of varying sizes. In the case of his “Conversations with the Hearing”, they are placed into rigid grids, evoking Modernist Hard-edged geometry. For Grigely, this “materialization of everyday life” is linked to notions of still-life painting in that both are composed of banal moments or forgettable interactions. Of his work, Grigely says, “I want to take people inside the experience of being deaf and share it with them. At the same time, I want to conflate it with various historical conventions.”
