Leunora Salihu's sculptural work articulates an unmistakable language of material and form in which the artist addresses fundamental sculptural issues such as constructive and organic building methods, movement and static form, the object-pedestal problem, and the relationship between inside and out, room and surroundings.
Her sculptural forms are based on a principle of modular construction in which the sequential repetition of handmade elements creates a taut rhythm emphasizing physical opposition: Expansion and attraction; gravity and weightlessness. Everything is connected and interdependent. Therein, the choice and combination of materials — foremost among them natural materials such as ceramic or wood — with their specific characteristics and production processes, are inseparable from the expressive quality of her sculptural work.
