Rachel Whiteread at Gagosian Geneva
Gagosian Geneva is pleased to present an exhibition of recent sculpture and works on paper by Rachel Whiteread. Whiteread’s approach to sculpture is predicated on the translation of negative space into solid form.

Casting from everyday objects, or from spaces around or within furniture and architecture, she uses materials such as rubber, dental plaster and resin to record every nuance.

In recent large-scale works, the empty interiors of wooden garden sheds were rendered in concrete and steel, recalling the earlier architectural works Ghost (1990), House (1993), and the imposing concrete sculpture Boathouse (2010), installed on the water’s edge in the remote Nordic landscape of Røykenviken.
