    About The Work

    Rachel Whiteread produced Installation of Ghost (1990-2012) as a special limited edition photograph; it is the second in Chisenhale Gallery's annual series, Archive Editions. Here, a series of images appear in the style of a photographer's contact sheet. Composed by Whiteread from original slide film documentation, the images trace her artistic process. The presence of armatures, assistants, ladders, and the artist herself provide intimate insight into the creation of the now legendary sculpture Ghost. The work commissioned and exhibited at Chisenhale Gallery in 1990 is a solid negative cast of the entire inside of a room from a Victorian terraced house. Bearing traces of all the architectural features and transplanted into the gallery, the work becomes a room within a room, with all its memories and events sealed anonymously inside it.
