Over Time (published by Inventory Press) pairs works from both James Benning (b. 1942) and Sharon Lockhart (b. 1964) with a collaborative, free association-like text. The result is a profound conversation between two accomplished artists that highlights how slow, studied examination and reflection can deepen and enrich often overlooked, everyday experience.
Benning and Lockhart have each made careers of investigating the structure of film itself and rethinking the use of duration and sound. Both artists’ work illustrates the importance of close observation and the evolving urban landscape.
