Rachel Whiteread single-handedly expanded the parameters of contemporary sculpture with her casts of the outer and inner spaces of familiar objects, sometimes in quiet monochrome, sometimes in vivid jewel-like colour.
This book, by writer and editor Charlotte Mullins – the first significant survey to examine Whiteread’s career to date – has been substantially updated with a new chapter on 10 major works, including Tate’s Turbine Hall installation Embankmentand Cabin, Whiteread’s first permanent public sculpture in America.
Born in London in 1963, Rachel Whiteread is one of Britain’s most exciting contemporary artists. Her work is characterised by its use of industrial materials such as plaster, concrete, resin, rubber and metal. With these she casts the surfaces and volume in and around everyday objects and architectural space, creating evocative sculptures that range from the intimate to the monumental. She won the Turner Prize in 1993, the same year as her first large-scale public project, House, a concrete cast of a nineteenth- century terraced house in London’s east end.
