Slavica Štrukelj-Kokoravec

Slavica Štrukelj-Kokoravec and her daughter Leya Marinčič 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. Slavica subjects fluctuate between figurative phases, characterised by a strong animal imprint, and transfigured works. This Slovenian artist uses a mixed technique and makes extensive use of enamel paints: the bright and impactful colours of her canvas are a distinctive feature of her poetic. Enamel is hard to control, takes a rhythm: the way the artist moves the liquid on the canvas affects the outcome. For many years she has been and is still working in the field of bioenergy healing. She realized how much hand gestures can influence energy flows and how they remove blockades that prevent this flows. She questioned herself, what happens when you project this gestures trough colours on canvas. She tested this, not only on herself, but also on others. She even got a certificate from the Bion Institute. This certificate proves, with use of scientific tools, that her paintings have positive influence on the health of beholder. The outcome is that her pictures have strong anti-stress impact with power of revitalisation.
