The room in space. The emptiness between the walls in Rachel Whiteread’s London atelier has turned into a sculpture, a casting of the upstairs apartment and basement stairs of her recently acquired atelier, that fills the space of Deutsche Guggenheim Berlin. The British sculptor has entitled her exhibition Transient spaces. The past only lives on when we remember it. Records help us not to forget. The artist has called “recording” the central theme of her art. ly conceived environment in the Sunley Room at the National Gallery, this publication tells the story of the work’s evolution and documents the close collaboration between Ofili and master weavers who have interpreted his designs with astonishing nuance.
