Open Arts Object: Gill Perry, Rachel Whiteread, House, 1993

Professor Gill Perry explores House - a sculptural installation made by British artist Rachel Whiteread in 1993 and commissioned by the arts charity Artangel. Although It appeared to be a life-size sculpture of a terraced house with its roof sliced off, it was in fact a negative cast of 193 Grove Road in Bow, East London. Part of a terrace scheduled for demolition, House was destroyed in January 2014.
