Rachel Whiteread has worked closely with East London’s legendary AB Foundry to produce Pallet, a highly detailed, wall-mounted bronze sculpture. As is typical for Whiteread, the object she chose to cast was relatively mundane. In this instance it was a found piece of cardboard packaging that carried a grid of round impressions left by its previous contents. These circular marks continue a motif found in Whiteread’s previous editions for Counter, Ringmark (2010) and LOndOn 2O12 (2011), and further her investigation of negative space and the traces of absence.

Whiteread has created an integrated hanging bracket on the reverse of the edition. Two small grooves allow the work to be hung by two screws fixed directly to a wall.

Pallet is Whiteread’s fifth edition for Counter, and continues our longstanding relationship with 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. Typically her sculptures are casts of the negative space surrounding or within an object. She is also a prolific draughtsman and printmaker, her two-dimensional work shares the primary concerns of her sculptures: texture and surface; void and presence; and the subtle observation of human traces in everyday life.
