Laura Salguero (León, 1987) is an artist whose work is developed between observation and dissection of the human being, studying, as an entomologist would, the origin of the passions and most primal and irrational behavior. The hidden face of our thinking, where the individual sets aside conventions to indulge into preternatural passion and fury.
She puts herself in the same historical impulse that caused the appearance of the cabinets of curiosities, but tries to shift that curiosity to the contemporary world. The objective that she pursues by creating her collections of "wonderful things" is, on the edge between reality and the chimerical, to try to re-enchant the world, delving into a collective mythical thinking.
Many of her pieces are miniatures in bronze or other materials with which the artist creates "imaginary miniworlds" that she shows off to the viewer, often facilitating a magnifying glass to amplify their curiosity and put them face to face with their role as an indiscreet spectator and often demeaning of what is different.
