|Untitled -Book Corridors|
[I saw and noticed a small work by Rachel at the Saatchi a couple of years back]
Tate Britain is hosting (quite a) bit of a retrospective and the nature of the work means that it's quite a different exhibition.
Rachel's work is (like many I guess) about observation and place - the way she abstracts solidity and creates work that resonates sets her apart - I was particulalrly drawn to the Room 101 (called Untitled Room 101) from George Orwell's book in turn derived from a room in the BBC Broadcasting House
I also liked the work that seems to capture the essence of a Library - Untitled -Book Corridors.
|Like me Rachel notices doors|
|A seat that fits the table|
|Chicken Shed -A work that's outside - where it should be|
|Another work about seats -Untitled 100 spaces|
Rachel Whiteread's Untitled- (Room 101) from the room in Broadcasting House.
There was a fascination for me too with the doors and chairs that fitted really neatly under tables - It's surprising that more don't do that.
Great that there was a work outside the Tate Britain too (and one in the Duveen space there as well).
