The British installation artist Rachel Whiteread does deliberately what the lava of Pompeii did naturally. She casts whole rooms or architectural details to create a sculptural reversal, places and objects which both literally and figuratively leave an impression and occupy space firmly even in their immateriality. The four series presented here on the theme of the “house” transform the functional qualities of surrounding architecture into aura-filled works of art. They are comprised of early and new works, providing a useful overview of this aspect of Whiteread's notable career. Four essays by well-known critics illuminate the principles behind her work to go along with over 50 color illustrations.

Edited by Christiane Schneider. Essays by Susanna Greeves and Christiane Schneider.

The newly founded gallery Haunch of Venison inaugurates its opening with an exhibition by internationally acclaimed sculptor Rachel Whiteread. The exhibition and accompanying publication feature Whiteread's newest work, Untitled (Domestic), a massive sculpture cast from the fire escape staircases of Haunch of Venison's premises--a 3-storey building constructed in the late eighteenth century that was originally the home of Admiral Lord Nelson. Reincarnating the staircase in its negative form, the imposing white sculpture invokes the building's past while reflecting the artist's interest in the formal and purely architectural qualities of sculpture. This inaugural publication features installation views of the exhibition, including additional work dating from 1995 to the present day, as well as two amply illustrated essays and a complete bibliography. The first text considers Whiteread's immense public commissions in relation to their environment; the second outlines the history and techniques involved in creating the cast staircase sculptures.

Rachel Whiteread: Transient SpacesRachel Whiteread: Transient Spaces

Published by Guggenheim Museum.
Essays by Lisa Dennison, Craig Houser, Beatriz Colomina, A.M. Homes and Molly Nesbit.

New Lower Price! Rachel Whiteread creates spare, poetic sculptures that challenge perceptions of the commonplace. Working from everyday domestic items, she casts--in rubber, concrete, plaster and polyester resin--the negative spaces inside closets and underneath beds, sinks, bathtubs and chairs. In one of her most personal projects, the artist was commissioned by Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin to make two large-scale casts from distinct spaces in a London building that she recently purchases as her home and studio. Although the building has a history as both a synagogue and a factory, it is a product of austere postwar architecture, lacking many of the traditional embellishments associated with such structures. This fully illustrated volume documents Whiteread's process as she creates casts from this religious-cum-industrial -cum-personal space, which blurs boundaries between the spiritual and secular, as well as the public and private.
