House remains Whiteread's best-known piece, but shehas produced a hugely diverse body of work, over a career that spans three decades. She made the holocaust memorial in the Judenplatz in Vienna, the fourth plinth in Trafalgar Square and filled the Tate Modern's Turbine Hall with 14,000 plastic boxes.
Whiteread sculptures are rough, industrial objects, made from materials such as resin, wire, concrete, chairs, cans. These everyday, household objects become poetic fossils: what usually goes unnoticed becomes intimate and eternal.
This autumn, the Tate Britain will stage a major exhibition of Whiteread's work, where a selection her drawings, collages and photographs will be on display alongside her better known works. Come and celebrate one of the most iconic contemporary artists of our time.
