Intro
This year the Jewellery Department of the EASD Valencia (School of Art and Design of Valencia) is glad to highlight the work of Laura Salguero. Laura is an already experienced artist who has wisely brought her concerns to the jewellery field with an absolutely personal proposal, which has been accomplished due to an exemplary technical and conceptual research. It is specially significant in her project the deep study about orthodontic practice and history, as well as her ability to penetrate into the magic of ancient rituals bringing the monstrousness to the present tense.
Teratodoncia gathers point by point the aim of our department: interdisciplinarity, scientific and technical values and artistic vision.
 
EASD Valencia, Spain.


TERATODONTICS. Terato- Prefix from ancient Greek. Teras-ato, "monster". Dontics- From ancient Greek ώδών "tooth".

This project starts from the belief that the instinct underlies several layers of reason; Infra-dermis, turning the skin into a mask, a veil that conceals our animality, our ancestral being, which remains unchanged after centuries of beliefs, customs, cultures, theories and fashion.

Teratodontics are amulets which contain the chaos that we, in fact, are. They cast a halo of sacrality and protective mythology upon us. Teratodontics reclaims this primal chaos, which is materialized in the shape of an animal fang, bringing it to the light and granting the status of a jewel. It’s a precious object meant to be displayed and shown off. It offers a new alternative to our subjectivity and proposes using the prosthetics as an exorcism and a communion with our inner and sacred animal.

These dental jewels are one of a kind and non-transferrable since they're made from the very user's dental prints.
Laura Salguero is a multidisciplinary artist whose work swings between sculpture, drawing, jewellery, and some fascinating techniques, like cyanotypes or taxidermy. She looks at the most appropriate technique available for each case, with the object of deciphering the origin of our passions and of our most primal behaviours, through observation and dissection of the human being, or even entomology. Laura’s work is a pilgrimage towards the hidden face of our thinking, where the individual sets aside convention to surrender to passion and preternatural fury.

Laura rescues collector's lust and scientific curiosity from a past era in a body of work where she analyses the human being, breaking it down in its utmost natural state. She mixes wild passions and hidden feelings explored in her plastic study. She has the same historical impulse that led to the emergence of the cabinets of curiosities, trying to translate that curiosity into the contemporary world. The goal behind creating the collections of “wonderful things” is to re-enchant the world, delving into the collective mythical thinking that lies between the real and the chimerical.
