This thesis examines casting as it is taken up by Louise Bourgeois, Eva Hesse and Rachel Whiteread and the implications of their in-between forms. As a method of making, casting allowed these artists to create works concerned with both interior and exterior relationships. Working in historical periods of transition, Bourgeois and Hesse diverge from the emerging popularity of Pop art and Minimalism choosing to retain the expressive elements of modernism. Contested notions of selfhood are exposed in the boundaries each creates through casting.
