Rachel Whiteread @ Gagosian Gallery
12 April 2021 - 5 June 2021
Internal Objects, is an exhibition of new work by Rachel Whiteread, who employs the formal language of Minimalism to objects’ minor details. She employs existing artifacts and spaces—including domestic objects like chairs and mattresses, interiors of rooms, and even, famously, an entire terraced house—to evoke and explore corporeal presence. Notably, her deft use of negative space can imply a thing that’s gone and been reincarnated.
In the exhibition, this suggestion of haunting, or ghostliness, is manifested in a different way, and in Internal Objects, she has created cabin-like structures but has, for the first time, eschewed casting existing objects in favour of building original ones.
