Freud und Psychoanalyse

Freud und Psychoanalyse 02

Grigely presents a combination of "Conversations" and "Portraits". Grigely, who became deaf as a result of a childhood accident, uses as his raw material the written conversations that he has in his daily life; the scraps of paper on which hearing people have written notes, names or phrases in order to communicate with him when he cannot read their lips. He uses these scraps of conversations to build wall pieces and table-top tableaus that all take as their subject matter the ineluctable differences between speech and writing, reading and listening.

The Conversations in this issue involve storytelling in a very ordinary sense – the stories we tell as part of our everyday lives.
