This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Known for her public art projects, Rachel Whiteread is dedicated in her words to bringing "forgotten space into the world" (Phillips de Pury & Luxembourg). In Vienna, Austria, she completed a 24 by 33 foot memorial to Holocaust victims titled "The Nameless Library." Few of her works have human figures, but their presence and especially their absence is usually suggested.

Rachel Whiteread was born in 1963 and studied sculpture at the Slade School in the mid-80s under Antony Gormley. Whiteread uses a variety of materials including plaster, polystyrene and steel. Typically her work casts an area which has its form prescribed by everyday objects, for example tables or baths, and defines them exactly by the object surrounding them.

The public sculpture "House," is a cast of the inside of a three story Victorian terraced house in East London, and it won Rachel Whiteread the Turner Prize in 1993. House stood alone as a symbol of survival, as all the other houses in Grove Road had already been knocked down to make way for redevelopment.
