plus ultra is psyched to present “color therapy for oedipal conflicts,” a solo exhibit of recent work by new york artist-curator rebekah rutkoff. in an installation of video (both curated and her own) and original photography, rutkoff continues her pursuit of a reliable route to aesthetic gratification through an exploration of the logic of the color spectrum as a central ordering device.

on a single monitor, rutkoff presents a program of color exploration through the video works of adam burke, peter eudenbach, spiro ginis, zac lowing, franklin miller, gayil nalls, vicente razo, pedro velez, and siebren versteeg, as well as her own work. rutkoff’s video program illustrates the logic of curatorial selection, the centrality of borrowing in the creation process, and her own particular drive to order elements in her work. her installation suggests that the medium of video exists somewhat like the psychoanalytic subject-in-progress, lacking the authority and claims of endurance of both painting and film, existing in a netherworld in the marketplace of art, and often provoking skepticism, about its capacity to make deep incisions as a form. therapeutic treatment comes via intersubjectivity (incorporation of the works of other artists) and structure (exposure to the dictates of the color spectrum). rutkoff’s installation also includes serial photography pieces generated from point-and-shoot imagery, installed in horizontal strips, which likewise rely on the color spectrum to turn them into art.
