Mark Hilltout has always been drawn to the random, the discarded and the broken. Car dumps fascinate him - he is attracted to the broken edge, not the perfectly straight line. For the past 12 years he has been looking intently at  something that most of us try to ignore. Corrugated iron. To the conventional eye, this is a poor man’s shelter to be used only in the absence of alternatives, a reminder of global inequality. Yet almost 2 centuries after its invention, it remains indispensable. To Mark, it is all of that but it is also endlessly complex and gloriously tarnished; something that time alone can create and no artist can hope to better. Burnt by the sun, flayed by wind and rain, each sheet is the result of thousands of happy and unhappy accidents - the perfect, imperfect material.
