I don't want to make plop art sculpture that just gets plopped down in places. I wouldn't want to litter every corner of the world with my sculpture.
Whiteread quotes
I make all this stuff in the studio, but I also work on these white elephants like House or Untitled Monument things that are incredibly ambitious, take an awful long time to do, involve a lot of controversy, an awful lot of people, and don't make any money particularly, but it's just because I need to make them.
Whiteread
I think the difference between me and some of the other YBAs [Young British Artists] was that I was ambitious for the work, and not ambitious for myself.




Whiteread Rachel quotes
We still have prostitutes standing on our corner, and people crapping round the back of buildings. The charms are still there.
