About The Work

The artist Rachel Whiteread creates elegant and poetic sculptures which explore architecture, space, absence, and memory. Often inspired by the physicality of the human body, her works are poignant for their exploration of intimate domestic spaces and household objects. Whiteread typically uses industrial materials, such as the stainless steel of this sculpture, to cast the negative space surrounding or within an object–here, electrical switch boxes. The resulting sculpture retains the texture and shape of the original object, yet is an eerie ghost of its former self.
