In a vast 1,500 sqm open gallery space, some of Whiteread’s most important large scale sculptures are shown alongside her more intimate works. These will include Untitled (Book Corridors) 1997–1998 and Untitled (Room 101) 2003 – a cast of the room at the BBC’s Broadcasting House thought to be the model for Room 101 in George Orwell’s dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty Four. A range of smaller sculptures include casts in different materials and colours from architectural features such as floors, doors and windows to domestic objects such as tables, boxes and a selection of Torsos, Whiteread’s casts of hot water bottles.
