Whiteread is best known for various large scale works, such as the Tate Modern turbine hall installation "Embankment" and "House" - pictured below. Her works seek to show the world in a different light - often through taking the cast of a space rather than an object and then exhibiting that out of context.
Pictured are, from top to bottom:
- Untitled (Novels)
- Untitled (Pair) - which are made from casts taken from Mortuary slabs,
- Untitled (Domestic) - which is the cast of a stairwell
- Untitled Monument
- House - the cast of an entire house
More information on the artist can be found here and here.
