Olia Lialina’s online browser-based artwork Summer (2013) is the work in focus for the second exhibition of LIMA’s Cultural Matter programme. In this animated piece by Lialina, we see the artist swinging back and forth, infinitely looped, basking in bright sunlight. Cut out against a gradient background of blue and white, the swing is hung from the location bar of the browser.
