Rachel Whiteread, along with seven other leading international artists, were asked to create a print to celebrate Tate Modern’s 21st anniversary. A third of the profits from the sale of each print will benefit Tate.
Lauded British artist Rachel Whiteread is best known for her peculiarly poignant renderings of the negative space that invisibly occupies our architectural and domestic surroundings. One of her most well-known series of sculptures involves the casting of the underside of chairs which are installed in various configurations, including a shimmering grid of 100 multicoloured resin boxes which made up her installation 'Untitled (One Hundred Spaces)’ displayed in Tate Britain’s Duveen galleries in 2018. Her screenprint for Tate Modern 21 Years - '50 Spaces’ (2021) directly references this body of work, with each of the chair forms rendered in delicate, sometimes semi-transparent pastel inks.
Rachel Whiteread became the first woman to receive the Turner Prize with her sculpture House (1993), a replica of the interior of a condemned London house created by filling a house with concrete and stripping away the mold. Her sculptures examine the negative space surrounding or contained by objects, such as casts of the area beneath chairs, suggesting how human contact becomes embedded in our environment. Referencing Minimalism, her drawings often incorporate graph paper. 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.
