UK artist Rachel Whiteread has outlined plans for her next project which devotees may struggle to find. "I made a piece in Norway. There was this boathouse on a fjord outside Oslo, in the middle of nowhere. It was going to be destroyed. So I shipped it here, cast it, and put it back on the fjord. I'm going to do a few more like that: two in LA, one in Norfolk, one somewhere else. I'm calling them my secret sculptures. They're little forgotten buildings, and I'm going to fossilise them," she told The Observer. People can use a map and book made by Whiteread to locate the works. "I'm really happy about the idea. It's public art that's not public art," adds the enigmatic artist.
