American artists James Benning (born 1942) and Sharon Lockhart (born 1964) often cite each other’s films as an influence on their own work, 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. Over Time pairs works from both Benning and Lockhart with a collaborative, almost stream-of-consciousness text. The result is a profound conversation between two accomplished artists that highlights how slow reflection can deepen and enrich everyday experience.
