This artwork is on view in the Walker exhibition The Living Years: Art after 1989. The text below is the artwork's label written for that exhibition.

When Rachel Whiteread’s acclaimed sculpture House (1993)—a full-size plaster cast of the interior space of a row house in London’s East End—was torn down, she made this series of prints depicting the leveling of three low-income housing complexes. Like her sculptures, which are often casts of the empty spaces between, under, or around objects and architecture, she has here memorialized these undistinguished, generic buildings as cultural remains.
