In 2008, artist-curators Gladys-Katherina Hernando and Jessica Minckley founded Light & Wire, an art gallery with no bricks and mortar home. Rather than use the internet merely to present images, information, or documentation, the pair established Light & Wire to challenge their peers to make “site-specific” works, using the possibilities and limitations inherent in the internet as their primary guidelines. Most of the works are made expressly for exhibition at Light & Wire, and as at any art gallery, most of them are available for purchase. Hernando and Minckley parted ways in 2009, but Hernando has continued to run Light & Wire, presenting nearly thirty exhibitions to date. Currently on view is Body Beach by Los Angeles-based artist Fay Ray. Ray used the often-maligned GIF to create a series of evocative animations: a basket twirling in the sand; a leather bag nudged by the tide at the ocean’s edge; a slab of clay festooned with household objects, cosmetics, and detritus. Beautifully shot in black and white, these delightful animations hint at the uneasy relationship between nature and culture, treating a potentially heavy subject in earnest but not without levity. Ray will continue to add new works to the exhibition each week through March 13.
