In pursuit of a private creative practice, I record a ritualised weekly dinner with my family. These recordings form an archive that is available exclusively to them. Restricting access to the archive divides the audience between family members and ‘everyone else’. The artwork incorporates the recordings, the archive and any conversations surrounding these elements. This thesis details: my evolution as a minor artist; the conditions which facilitate the creation of a conceptual discursive artwork; the complications that arise from the personal and subjective nature of the research; and the audiences’ relationship to an artwork which is conditionally unavailable.
