Rachel Whiteread is widely recognised for her sculptural work which often takes the form of concrete or resin casts, exploring the negative space of domestic locations or objects.
Whiteread’s best known artwork is probably House (1993), a concrete cast of the inside of a condemned terraced house in London’s East End. As a result of the installation, Whiteread became the first female artist to win the prestigious Turner Prize.
Other significant public art commissions have included a Holocaust memorial for the Judenplatz in Vienna, an empty resin plinth installed in Trafalgar Square in 2001 and Embankment, a major installation created for the Tate Modern Turbine Hall in 2005.
