Rachel Whiteread, Installation of Ghost, 1990 - 2012.
Chisenhale Gallery is pleased to announce that Rachel Whiteread has produced a very special limited edition, the second in their annual series of ‘Archive Editions’. Rachel Whiteread made an exhibition at Chisenhale Gallery in 1990. This was Whiteread’s first major solo exhibition in a public gallery in the UK. She was subsequently commissioned by Artangel to produce House in 1993 and was awarded the Turner Prize the same year. For her exhibition at Chisenhale Gallery Whiteread produced Ghost (1990), 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.
Installation of Ghost (1990-2012) depicts the work as a series of images laid out in the style of a classic photographers’ ‘contact sheet’. Composed by Whiteread from original slide film documentation, the images trace her process of re-production. The presence of armatures, assistants, ladders and the artist give an intimate insight into the creation of the now legendary sculpture, while the patina of the film stock reveals the atmospheric material qualities of the photographic image itself.
