Rachel Whiteread: Internal Objects
This book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Rachel Whiteread: Internal Objects at Gagosian, Grosvenor Hill, London, featuring new work by the artist, including large cabin-like structures, sculptures in resin and bronze, and works on paper. The catalogue explores Whiteread’s engagement with the formal language of Minimalism, as well as her acute sensitivity to objects’ minor details and subtle markers of use and human irregularity. Whether they take the form of monumental public installations or small, intimate sculptures, Whiteread’s forms imply hidden narratives and secret histories. The publication includes an essay by Richard Calvocoressi; a reprint of “The Chrysanthemums,” a short story by John Steinbeck; and a poem by Mark Waldron.
