At a time when young British artists are receiving international acclaim and attention, Rachel Whiteread is generally considered to be one of the foremost sculptors of her generation. First nominated for the Turner Prize in 1991, she was awarded the prize in 1993. The same year, she confirmed her increasing national and international reputation with House, the sculpture cast from a condemned terraced house in East London. In November 1996, her Holocaust Memorial, one of Europes most prestigious public commissions of this decade, was inaugurated in Viennas Judenplatz. Whiteread works with everyday objects and, above all, with the spaces in, under, or around them. Her castings interrogate the familiar, looking under the rug and inside the closet at the spaces and structures among which we live. This book, produced in collaboration with the artist, is the most comprehensive publication to date on her work- it accompanies a major retrospective exhibition at the Tate Gallery. It includes a conversation between the artist and noted critic Rosalind Krauss, and essays by Michael Tarantino, Bartomeu Mari, and Stuart Morgan.
