Passing Thoughts and Making Plans is an exhibition that brings together artists who use photography as part of their thought process; as a tool for working out, following and shaping ideas that will develop into a finished work.

The concept behind the exhibition comes from Yass’ desire to reveal work in process and to consider that the experience of viewing preparations and sketches for art works holds complexities and interest in its own right. Passing thoughts and making plans features previously unseen work from internationally renowned artists Tacita Dean, Jeremy Deller, Sarah Jones, Alex Katz, Sharon Lockhart, Cornelia Parker, Richard
Wentworth and Rachel Whiteread.

The exhibition is the third in the Jerwood Visual Arts Encounters series, which act as conversations about and between the disciplinary fields of the Jerwood Visual Arts programme. Passing Thoughts and Making Plans is a conversation about the role of photography in each of the artists’ practice and aims to give visitors a deeper understanding of the process of making work, through having a rare glimpse of the preparatory work
behind a finished piece. Finished examples of the artists’ work, displayed in books and catalogues, will also be on show.

“Photographic images are often part of a fluid chain of thoughts and notes that cross over into
different areas. They might be snap shot prints or contacts stuck in a notebook, incorporated into a
drawing, combined with writing or just left on a table amongst other bits and pieces. This process is
what I wanted to convey in the exhibition.”

Rachel Whiteread “Internal Objects” Gagosian / London

Rachel Whiteread’s latest exhibition, “Internal Objects’, is an ode to lost bodies and the ghosts of our language. Showing now at Gagosian in London, Whiteread’s sculpture gives a unique incarnation to the uncanny, through its focus on the specific process by which familiar shapes and objects can be made alien to their observer.

Rachel Whiteread Internal Objects

Gagosian is to present Internal Objects, an exhibition of new work by Rachel Whiteread. Whiteread employs the formal language of Minimalism, taking cues from its emphasis on geometric seriality, yet adds a quietly emotive aspect, maintaining an acute sensitivity to objects’ minor details and subtle markers of use and human irregularity.
