Rachel Whiteread


Rachel Whiteread (b. 1963) was one of the original YBAs (Young British Artists) alongside Damien Hirst and Tracey Emin. 

After their breakout exhibitions in the early 1990's, Whiteread was awarded the prestigious Turner Prize in 1993, becoming the first female artist to receive the honor.  

Unlike several of her YBA peers, her practice has continuously evolved experiencing a consistent upward trajectory.

Her work is a fascinating intersection between minimalism and conceptualism. Primarily working with sculpture and often using casts, Whiteread creates phantom copies of architectural or domestic elements.

"House" - the large-scale puzzling public work that encouraged her Turner Prize win, was a concrete cast of an entire 19th century London home. 

Over the past twenty years Whiteread has created similar sculptures that reference memory and the vessels or structures that posses history. Doors, boxes, mattresses and architectural elements are frequent motifs. 

While Whiteread has produced a limited body of work that is domestically proportioned, works on paper are especially rare.

In 2005, the year this work was created, she had a major exhibition  at Gagosian (London) and the Kunsthaus Bregenz (Austria).

Whiteread was commissioned by the Austrian institution for a new work and produced "Doors": an assemblage of casts of fourteen different doors from buildings in London. 

This print is the accompanying piece for the sculpture/installation.
