Antonia Dewhurst: Haearn/Iron @Oriel Mwldan

For over a century corrugated iron has been woven through the fabric of the rural Welsh landscape. While not unique to the region, it is nevertheless an integral characteristic of our countryside.

The material, loved by some, loathed by others, is so ubiquitous that it often goes unnoticed as it weathers back into the earth. This project sets out to record what remains of these structures before they disappear entirely.

Through photography, video, sound and sculpture, Antonia Dewhurst will investigate the role of architecture as a metaphor for the human condition, our universal need for shelter and our complex relationship with that which we call ‘home’.
