Rachel Whiteread. Shedding Life

Rachel Whiteread’s work is based on taking casts from the most commonplace objects. They evoke a combination of familiarity and strangeness, partly because they are not actually casts of the objects but of the spaces around or inside them. “House”, a casting of the interior spaces of an entire building, stimulated debate among the art world and general public alike. This catalogue introduces some of Whiteread’s less familiar works. Informative essays, together with numerous illustrations, introduce and explore the work of the sculptor.
