Rachel Whiteread

From my review of Rachel Whiteread’s show at Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts:
The gallery is dark for Rachel Whiteread’s “Place (Village)” installation at the Museum of Fine Arts, except for lights glowing within the neighborhoods of little houses stacked up around the edges of the room, as if on three hillsides. They turn out to be more than 200 second-hand dollhouses that the 45-year-old London sculptor has stacked on the wooden shipping crates they were sent to the museum in. It feels like bedtime in the village of girlhood dreams.
Read the rest here.

Coming soon:
An interview with Whiteread.

I am against nature. I don’t dig nature at all. I think nature is very unnatural. I think the truly natural things are dreams, which nature can’t touch with decay.
