From 2 February 2018, a negative cast of a classic English chicken shed, displayed in the Peach Garden of the Upper Belvedere, is serving as the preamble to her upcoming retrospective at the Belvedere 21.

About

Rachel Whiteread has worked for a number of years on a series of huts and houses typically found in remote and difficult-to-access locations.  One of these works cast in concrete, titled Chicken Shed, was made especially for this retrospective and depicts a small chicken shed that originally stood in the English county of Norfolk. The surface of the cast concrete even contains recognizable details from the hand-sawn wood used to construct the shed. The sculpture was installed in 2017 on the grounds of Tate Britain in London and now serves as the precursor to the exhibition at the Belvedere 21 in the gardens of the Upper Belvedere. Chicken Shed by Rachel Whiteread will be on view, free of charge, until the end of July 2018.
