Sharon Lockhart in Person
Monday September 17 at 7pm
Offering a poetic counterpoint to her earlier factory diptych, Lunchbreak (2008) and Exit (2008), Sharon Lockhart returned to Maine and her abiding interest in American labor in her exquisite and meditative Double Tide, a portrait of a clam digger hard at work on the day of an ultra-rare occurrence – two daytime low tides, at dawn and dusk. Lockhart’s roots in photography and structuralist cinema intertwine as she follows the transforming landscapes of the misty morning and the quiet close of day, with the solitary figure of the clam digger, a poignant emblem of New England’s slowly fading historic industries. Also exhibited as a two channel video installation, Double Tide is a meditative expansion and enrichment of the ideas of “stillness” and landscape that remain important thematic constants of Lockhart’s oeuvre. The Harvard Film Archive is pleased to welcome back Sharon Lockhart who will be joined by the subject of her film, clam digger Jen Casard.
