|Ghost, Ghost II|
British born artist Rachel Whiteread (b 1963) has been creating casts of negative spaces of everyday things for a while now. Whiteread is best known for large-scale commissions such as her early work 'House', a concrete cast from the interior of an old Victorian house in London which later made her the first woman to win the Turner prize in 1993. Whiteread uses the void to create life-size objects. The domestic and intimate spaces immortalised by the artist evoke a haunting stillness and I imagine the scale could be quite overpowering and at other times we feel we are looming over the objects such as 'Place (Village)'.
