Presentation
"Exceptiología" [nonexistent word: science that would study the exception] is an exhibition in which the artist invites the viewer to delve into everything that underlies the darkness, outside the territory of the standard.

Through a reflection on the taxonomic methods historically proposed by the Museums of Sciences directed to educate through the empirical observation of the natural laws, with her works and its assembly the artist questions the "so very tempting interest to distribute the entire world in terms of a single code" (Perec), a universal law based exclusively on logical / rational thinking. And she appropriates the didactic character of the museographic institution to propose new forms of classification that take as its starting point the emotion and the irrationality.

The exhibition consists of several series in which the artist uses techniques related to the traditional methodology of documentation and classification of species: salt papers, cyanotypes, watercolors or bronze sculptures showing unusual specimens; taxonomic posters with catalogs of exceptional species and even procedures extracted from the field of dental prosthetics, such as those used for the series "Teratodoncias" that is arranged as a cabinet in one of the rooms of the gallery, appropriating the exhibition patterns of those museums.
