Save Event: Place (Village), Rachel Whiteread

People who have saved this event:


Rachel Whiteread’s celebrated artwork Place (Village) (2006-2008) is a sculptural work featuring a ‘community’ of around 150 Dolls’ houses which were collected by Whiteread over 20 years. The artwork joins the 100+ Dolls’ houses in the Museum collection.


The large-scale artwork is an assembly of vintage Dolls’ houses in a variety of architectural styles and averaging around one metre high. The houses sit on stepped platforms, evoking a sprawling hillside ‘community’. The houses are lit from within, but deserted, their emptiness evoking haunting memories and melancholy.
