Leya Marinčič and her mother Slavica Štrukelj-Kokoravec make a duo called “Dance of Energy”. Their poetics strongly revolves about a shared passion for body gestures and expressiveness. The underlying concept is to try to use the gestures and meaningful strength of a dancing body, channel those powerful movements into a method of execution.
Times, rhythm, expressive intention, muscle and nerve strain perfectly overlap in dance performance: the creation of an artistic work becomes, in this perspective, a performative act in itself for these two artists. Animals and dancers are Leya Marinčič’s favourite topics. Movement is at the heart of this Slovenian sculptor poetics.   The bull, the horse, the ballerina, they all use gestures which she senses like a shared dance imbued with shared energy released by the succession of action and stillness.

Leya Marincic attended the High School for Design and Photography in Ljubljana. She studied painting, photography, video art and sculpture. In her sculptural research she uses numerous materials such as fiberglass, different types of epoxy resins, stone, teron, wood and metal. She has exhibited in numerous venues such as the PopArt Gallery and the Ozeljan Castle. She has also exhibited in Vienna at the Slovenian Cultural Centre Korotan, in Italy at the LuxArt Gallery in Trieste and in Milan in the event “Milano Scultura Step Art” and in South Korea, where her sculpture was added to the museum of Kangwon National University.
