"Rachel Whiteread: First Solo Exhibition on Scotland"
2001-09-29 until 2001-12-09
National Galleries of Scotland
Edinburgh, , UK

Born in London in 1963, Rachel Whiteread is one of Britain's leading artists. This exhibition at the Gallery of Modern Art, co-organised with the Serpentine Gallery in London, will include fifteen major sculptures, including one large work made especially for the exhibition. Since 1988 Whiteread has made casts of the insides of ordinary domestic objects, initially using wardrobes, and subsequently beds, floors, baths and even whole rooms. Cast in plaster, rubber or resin, the works duplicate the space within the objects in an arresting and richly metaphorical way.

In 1993 Whiteread made a cement cast of the inside of a terraced three-story house in the London borough of Hackney, where she lives and works. House was demolished, amidst great controversy, in 1994; at the same moment Whiteread was awarded the Turner Prize. While Whiteread's work has been exhibited internationally, this is her first important solo exhibition in either London or in Scotland.
