Rachel Whiteread's 'House' Edition for Migrate Art Gets Artcleared

Rachel Whiteread's 'House' Edition for Migrate Art Gets Artcleared

‘House’, the new limited edition by Rachel Whiteread for Migrate Art is the latest series of works to be Artcleared.

Every print in the 75-piece edition is accompanied by an Artclear Certificate of Authenticity (CoA). To create the CoAs, each print has been scanned by Artclear to generate a unique digital fingerprint that indelibly links each artwork to its respective CoA.

Fingerprints ensure the uniqueness of every work in the edition. They can be used to re-authenticate individual prints with forensic certainty, simply by scanning the work in question again.

Rachel Whiteread is a sculptor and one of Britain’s best-known contemporary artists. Her sculptures typically cast everyday objects and architectural spaces, using materials such as concrete, plaster and resin. In 1993 she became the first woman to win the Turner Prize with ‘House’, a concrete cast of a condemned terraced house in the East End of London.
This edition shares its name with Whiteread’s Turner Prize winning sculpture. The artwork for ‘House’, 2023, was created using colouring pencils salvaged by Migrate Art from the Calais Jungle refugee camp in France.

This is Artclear’s second collaboration with Migrate Art, following the release of an edition by Richard Long in March 2023.

Prints will be available to buy on Wednesday 21 June at 4pm, on Migrate Art’s website. The release raises funds to directly support the work of Refugee Community Kitchen, a charity that serves nourishing food to displaced people in the UK and France.
