Tate Britain will be celebrating the career of one of the country's top contemporary artists -- Rachel Whiteread.
This comprehensive exhibition will showcase some of her best sculpture from the last 25 years, which is characterised by her use of industrial materials such as concrete, rubber, resin and metal to make casts of everyday objects.
Her sculptures range from the intimate to the famously monumental -- it was Whiteread who won the Turner Prize for "House", a full-size cast of the interior of a condemned terraced house. Sadly that famous work was controversially demolished after a few months, but this exhibition will bring together some of her other well-known works like 'Ghost', '100 Spaces' and 'Staircase', and put them alongside pieces that have never been previously exhibited.
