Abstract:
Although Northern Irish society looks similar to its counterparts in Great Britain and the Republic of Ireland, it is codified quite differently. With the signing of the Good Friday Agreement and the cessation of paramilitary violence, politicians and other concerned parties have been trying to move Northern Ireland towards a more normal state of existence. This process is largely discussed as the process of 'normalisation'. Key to normalising Northern Irish society is an understanding of the way in which it is codified. It is my contention that key to this is an understanding of the role played by domestic space in the cohesion of everyday life in Northern Ireland. This thesis originates from the desire to create a political art practice that successfully materialises and engages with the political conditions underpinning Northern Irish society in the period 2005-2008. Crucial in this endeavour has been the practical and theoretical consideration of the significance of domestic space within Northern Irish culture.
