Double Vision at Fort Gorges + Orbis Edition Publication

A collaboration with Andrea Steves and Francois Hughes, Double Vision explores the Cold War history of the Nike Missile Program and its counterparts in the USSR. The project began in the Bay Area’s Marin Headlands, which is home to the Nike Missile Battery, part of a nationwide nuclear missile defense system active from 1951 to 1972. The ongoing project gathers materials from former Nike veterans and archives to create interactive experiences using low power FM transmission and video installation at a variety of former military sites.

"Stones Unturned" at Black Crown Gallery

"Stones Unturned" at Black Crown Gallery

Stones Unturned

Solo exhibition at Black Crown Gallery, Oakland 

June 30 - August 5, 2017

The Recollection of Stones Unturned is a solo exhibition of “hybrid paintings” by Yulia Pinkusevich that examine the collaboration between humans and machines in these early days of extraterrestrial exploration. Drawing upon photographs taken by autonomous robots from the Martian surface and employing the latest laser-based technologies as a tool for creating, Pinkusevich considers the position of humankind in a present in which speculative fictions are becoming technological realities—our machine-aided capabilities expanding the reach of our species in both space and time.

Central to Pinkusevich’s work is the pivotal moment in which robots—as proxies for humans—began simultaneously making photographs of and altering the terrain of Mars. The resulting images gaze back into the deep time of extraterrestrial geologies—landscapes formed over the course of eons—while the interventions look forward as the starting point of a possible future of human interplanetary colonization. These excavations into the Martian ground are echoed in the process of creating these “hybrid paintings”; Pinkusevich employs laser cutters to etch through layers of hand-applied acrylic paint, each pass revealing a new color and further resolving the image. The etched surface of the resulting works begin to take on a topographic dimension, visually paralleling the landscapes depicted. In completing the pieces by drawing over and under the paint surface with colored pastels, Pinkusevich recapitulates the human-machine authorship of the original photographs.

For many of the works on display artifact takes on a dual presence: the image itself as an artifact of contemporary technology, produced in part for the consideration of future generations; and digital artifacts evident as errors, inclusions and blank spots as a result of the many transmissions and translations that the photographic images are subjected to between exposure and painting. The binary presence of artifact speaks to the imprecise translation from technologically-produced data to human experience, and the impossibility of projecting with any clarity the future of humanity.

Everybody’s Ocean

Santa Cruz Museum of Art

December 19, 2014 – April 19, 2015

Open to the public December 19th
Opening reception: 
January 2nd 5-9 PM with special performances by Henry Kaiser, Kadet Kuhne, Elia Vargas and Jason Wyman. Find out more here.

Everybody’s Ocean works just like our relationship to the ocean: it constantly evolves. The ocean represents anything from womb to tomb. We personify it as a wrathful god, a seductive spirit, or an indomitable force. The four oceans of the world cover 71% of the Earth’s surface and link us to primordial pasts. The ocean is a living, shared space and one of the greatest unexplored mysteries of the world. Everybody interprets the ocean in different ways. Your work has unique inspiration. Let’s share it with each other.

"Thresholds: Shadow Self" at Alter Space
to Mar 29

"Thresholds: Shadow Self" at Alter Space


ALTER SPACE PRESENTS Thresholds: Shadow Self by Yulia Pinkusevich

March 15 – 29, 2014
OPENING: March 15, 2014 from 7-10pm
A.I.R Exhibition

Thresholds: Shadow Self, is a site-specific installation by Yulia Pinkusevich, located in the
basement of the gallery. Pinkusevich has embedded an architecturally scaled structure into the existing space that explores notions of shadow, light, barrier and threshold. Utilizing 30+
reclaimed doors that she collected during her time at RecologySF (SF Dump), this immersive
environment aims to evoke personal inquiry and examination, prompting visitors to embark in an act of investigation as they navigate the maze-like arrangement through its series of doors.

Pinkusevich’s Thresholds is inspired by the Jungian philosophy of shadow, that which hides in the subconscious darkness of the human psyche. Even though the shadow exists in the psyche, waiting to reveal itself through human action, it seldom manifests in real life. This installation creates a dialogue with the body that is aimed at prompting a deeper awareness of the journey into one’s self, shining light on dark corners of the psyche while playing with the viewers perceptions of space.

Art’s not psychology, some art can be psychological but I don’t claim to be able to solve
people’s problems through an installation. I do hope it makes you ponder a bit or think about
why- I think art is meant to be an experience, I control certain aspects of it but I can’t control
how it’s perceived, that belongs to the audience.

Yulia Pinkusevich is an interdisciplinary visual artist. Born in 1982 in Kharkov, Ukraine she holds a Masters of Fine Arts from at Stanford University and Bachelors of Fine Arts from Rutgers University Mason Gross School of the Arts. Yulia has been awarded residency grants from Recology (SF Dump), Cite des Arts International in Paris, Headlands Center for the Arts, Redux in South Carolina, Goldwell Open Air Museum and The Wurlitzer Foundation. She received The San Francisco Foundations 2011 Phelan, Murphy & Cadogan Fellowship in the Fine Arts as well as Stanford University SiCA’s Spark and ASSU Grants. She currently lectures at Stanford University and resides in East Palo Alto, California.
