See this work by Rachel Whiteread, made up of 100 component parts arranged in a grid

Here in the Duveen Galleries the parts are placed in a five by twenty formation. Each piece is the cast of the underside of a found chair, made in coloured resin, a material Whiteread began to use early in her career. The process of casting retains the imperfections of the wear and tear of the original objects. As with much of Whiteread’s work, the casts are the result of a time-consuming, labour-intensive and technically ambitious method of casting.

See more of the artist's work in our Rachel Whiteread exhibition on at Tate Britain 12 September 2017 – 21 January 2018.
