CLAUDIO CORREA - BLING BLING
Petri dish, dental prosthetics, military medals
It is an installation made up of 69 small objects exhibited on the wall, in which the artist meticulously assembles tiny pieces of military iconography such as stars, winged goddesses and condors - whose references are condecorations and coins created during the military dictatorship in Chile - with dental prosthesesmade manually by him and who intervened with these and other characteristic ornaments of popular culture.
The objects created by Correa are presented as a kind of hybrid that mixes aesthetics of two opposing worlds: the epic and the human dispossession, thus constituting an apparent visual paradox;dental prostheses are brutally presented, exhibiting their artificial carnality, to dismantle the iconography that adorns them.
